One Key Research Area: Optical spectroscopy based cancer diagnostics
About us:Development of optical spectroscopy based non-invasive, in vivo cancer diagnostic adjunct.
Lab activities:Optical spectroscopy-IR absorption, Raman scattering and fluorescence are being actively pursued as potential alternatives/adjunct methods to existing techniques in various aspects of cancer management, which include screening. We focus on the following in our laboratory:
1. Evaluation of the efficacy of in vivo/in situ Raman spectroscopy for routine screening and diagnosis under clinical setting.
2. Developing Raman microspectroscopy for diagnosis / screening using cell smear, serum, plasma and tissue microsections. 3. We will also explore the complementary FTIR spectroscopy to further validate the findings of Raman spectroscopy as well as to gain better insight.
