60 Second Science: Stephen Boppart on Using Light to Diagnose Disease

Beckman Institute Bioimaging Science and Technology group member Stephen Boppart presents his research in sixty seconds. As the head of the Biophotonics Imaging Laboratory at the Beckman Institute, Boppart uses light to image biological tissue and diagnose disease. By combining optical imaging, biophotonics, and other advanced imaging techniques with clinical research, Boppart creates high-resolution, real-time, non-invasive images of biological tissue at the cellular and molecular level for diagnosing diseases such as cancer. Boppart is a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Bioengineering, and is affiliated with the Department of Internal Medicine in the College of Medicine, the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, and the Institute for Genomic Biology.
