At OHSU, biomedical imaging researchers develop new ways to see inside the body, visualize disease processes and analyze data and images. Our faculty have pioneered imaging technology in ophthalmology, super resolution single-molecule microscopy and the use of fluorescent probes to protect nerves during surgery.
Our projects include:
- Developing image analysis tools to quantify multiscale imaging and gain insights into the spatial distribution of cancer cells and their interactions within the tumor microenvironment. (Chang Lab)
- Developing optimized imaging reagents to expand the capabilities of patient-specific imaging. (Gibbs Lab)
- Design and develop contrast agents to improve surgery, with a focus on nerve-specific fluorescent agents to aid in nerve identification, visualization and sparing during an operation. (Gibbs Lab)
- Study of immune cell trafficking in the iris of the eye. (Yali Jia Lab)
- Lanthanide-loaded nanoparticles as potential fluorescent and mass probes for high-content protein analysis and monitoring. (Yantasee Lab)
- Imaging cancer patient blood cells at the molecular level to help a person track the success of their treatment prior to, during and following cancer therapy. (Vu Lab)
- Development of a pointillist microscopy system to visualize and quantify the formation of molecular aggregates (condensates). (Galbraith Lab)
- Advanced microscopy techniques (single-molecule, light sheet, novel fluorescent dyes) to understand molecular mechanisms underlying migration in normal and diseased cells. (Galbraith Lab)
