Oct 2018

Our R01 proposal on investigating retinal capillary dysfunctions by oblique scanning ophthalmoscopy and visible light optical coherence tomography in diabetic retinopathy is funded by NIH/NINDS! The project is a working collaboration with BMC eye clinics, and our clinical collaborators Dr. Steven Ness. We are excited to finally work in the clinical environment!

Sept 2018

Our R21 project with BMC eye clinics is funded by NIH/NEI in developing sensitive optical markers for diagnosis of ocular surface maligancy! We are looking forward to taking the full swing of our newly developed imaging method in clinics with our wonderful clinical collaborator Dr. Lee

Aug 2018

Our paper "Fiber-based visible and near infrared optical coherence tomography (vnOCT) enables quantitative elastic light scattering spectroscopy in human retina" is in the list of top downloaded paper in July 2018 in Biomedical Optics Express! We have two consecutive papers that are top downloader in BOE. Great job and keep up the good work!

Aug 2018

Collaborative R01 project with UCLA is funded by NIH/NCI on developing a noval nanodelivery platform for antibody drugs targeting lymphoma in the central nerve system! Oblique scanning laser ophthalmoscopy will be put in test to evaluate the drug delivery. Very exciting!
