We are developing low-cost in vivo microscopy devices that can visualize cellular details of human tissues in vivo and help disease diagnosis and treatment in low-resource settings, high-speed tissue microscopy technologies that can examine entire organ under risk of having malignant diseases and detect small, early-stage lesions, and miniature microscopy devices that have the potential to examine anatomically-challenging human organs and facilitate integration of microscopic imaging with other imaging modalities.

Precise diagnosis and treatment of disease requires an ability to target agents to specific tissues and cell types within those tissues. We are developing agents that exhibit cell type specificity for these purposes.

Prof. Euan McLeod studies optical systems for sensing and imaging objects at the nanoscale. His lab uses optical tweezers to "print" photonic devices at higher resolution out of more types of materials than other 3D printers. Euan also works on cost-effective field-portable lensfree holographic microscopes that provide high resolution across an ultra-large field of view. These microscopes are used for biomedical sensing and environmental air quality monitoring.

How do bacteria "talk" to the body? How does the body reply to the microbe? How does this conversation affect your health and well being?
