Biomedical Engineering


Welcome to the Biomedical Photonics Laboratories!



The Biomedical Photonics laboratories are focused on the applications of light in medicine and biology. By bringing together researchers from throughout the University and the Medical Center, Vanderbilt has established an international presence in the field of biomedical photonics. Our researchers develop and implement various optical technologies for diagnosing and treating both physiological and pathological processes in the human body. Our group includes undergraduate researchers, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research faculty and staff. We offer opportunities for research to undergraduate students early in their academic careers and are always seeking bright young researchers in our graduate program. Please explore our website for more information about our research, education and training.
