Research in the Rogers lab explores the exciting ways in which imaging and optics can be used to enable discoveries in basic biology and medicine and to improve disease screening, diagnosis, and medical care. By combining aspects of theoretical modeling, computational simulation, and development of new optical instruments, the lab works to advance the state of the art and develop new medical technologies for a wide range of applications. Current work includes development of fiber optic probes for cancer screening, spectroscopy of lipofuscin autofluorescence in AMD, imaging metabolic activity in differentiating stem cells, and characterizing tissue using optical scattering properties.
