Research on Tap: Light as Medicine

Light, composed of photons, is the foundation of life. Photons exist everywhere, and scientists are now able to harness and manipulate these photons to see into the biological world invisible to the naked eye—and to create a healthier world. This session brings together experts on the BU campus to share their interests in advancing photonics for life science and medicine. Examples include monitoring breast cancer therapy by diffused photons, watching how a virus replicates in a host cell, seeing blood flow inside a human brain, and modulating neuron activity at high precision.
