Dr. Zhen Qiu's research interests include biomedical optics, MEMS/MOEMS, multi-modal targeted imaging, wearable and implantable medical devices, ultrafast laser applications. He aims to study both cancer biology and translational medicine with custom-made micro-systems enabled ultra-thin in-vivo sensing/imaging tools. His current work is mainly focused on miniaturized optical imaging system development for early cancer detection and molecular imaging guided surgical navigation, such as wide-field imaging guided micro-scanner based confocal microendoscope, multi-photon/SHG handheld microscope, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. Our lab is located at Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ).
Students who are interested in instrumentation, imaging processing, programming, are all encouraged to apply with up-to-date CV. Students' major could be in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical engineering, Optics, Physics, Biology or a related field. Additionally, familiarity with one or more of the followings is preferred: MEMS, programming in Labview/C++/Python, MCU and FPGA (Verilog/VHDL), fiber laser, optical imaging, optical design and manufacturing, fiber optics, spectroscopy, image processing.
