Biomedical Optics and Its Applications

Assoc. Prof. Anna Yaroslavsky directs the University's Advanced Biophotonics Laboratory, where the major focus of the research is on the structural and functional characterization of pathology. Other research directions that are pursued in her laboratory include 

  • Integration of multiple optical imaging and spectroscopic approaches (i.e., elastic scattering, polarization imaging, fluorescence and fluorescence polarization imaging and spectroscopy) to monitor biochemical and physiological processes in real time on spatially different scales
  • Modeling of light propagation in and interaction with biological tissues, liquids and cells
  • High-precision quantitative measurements of optical properties of tissues and liquids
  • Development of all-optical and milti-modal image-guided intervention techniques.
