Research in the Biophotonics Laboratory at the Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Biomedical Engineering focusses on developing cost-effective optical solutions for use in cancer detection and treatment monitoring. Recent innovations include the deep UV fluorescence microscope, the integrated fiber-optic probe for laser tumor ablation, and the Smartphone Microendoscope, a device that facilitates cost-effective and non-invasive detection and professional evaluation of cervical cancer for any organization with access to a smartphone.
The Biophotonics Laboratory is developing an intraoperative breast tumor margin imaging device with both large margin coverage and microscopic resolution that can accurately and efficiently evaluate an entire surgical specimen.
The Biophotonics Laboratory is working to develop affordable cervical cancer screening technology for use in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs), where women may lack access to effective or affordable screening procedures.
Monitoring tissue status during ablation is critical, and investigators at the Biophotonics Laboratory have developed an easy-to-operate, real-time integrated laser ablation (iLA) solution.
In response to a growing demand for technologies that monitor tumor hypoxia, the Biophotonics Laboratory has developed a side-firing fiber-optic probe that quantifies tissue hemoglobin content and oxygenation level non-invasively.
Correct positioning of the ETT inside the trachea is critical, and Investigators at the Biophotonics Laboratory are developing novel technology to assist medical professionals in continuously monitoring their correct placement.
