The Barman Laboratory

Innovate. Build. Apply. We innovate new spectroscopic imaging methods that uniquely bridge molecular and morphologic domains across different length scales. We build tailored nanostructures that enhance imaging and detection of biological targets in vitro and in vivo. We apply advanced machine learning methods to uncover objective biomarkers for diagnoses prior to conventional manifestations and to provide patient stratifications for more effective therapy.

15+ Years

Shining Light on Human Life

Our research is focused on developing integrative photonics solutions to complex problems in biological research and medical diagnosis. The field of biomedical optics and spectroscopy has expanded greatly due to the technological advances in optical instrumentation and the development of label-free imaging methodologies for clinical applications.
