Research Interests
Dr. Eliceiri’s research interests include developing optical and computational approaches to study dynamic cellular processes non-invasively. He believes that applying these technologies to vision studies will solve fundamental problems in eye and vision research. His current research focuses on the development of novel optical imaging methods and instrumentation for investigating cell signaling and cancer progression, as well as the development of software for multidimensional imaging informatics. Specific interests include developing nonlinear optical approaches for deeper imaging and sensing of the cellular microenvironment, as well as computational algorithms for dealing with large multidimensional datasets with spatial and non-spatial components.
