|About||Research lab at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and of the Brazilian Institute of Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (BRAINN), in Campinas (SP, Brazil).|
The Biomedical Optics Lab (or LOB, its portuguese acronym) is part of the Neurophysics group in the Department of Cosmic Rays and Cronology (DRCC) of the Institute of Physics (IFGW) at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Under the coordination of Prof. Rickson Mesquita since 2011, the lab studies light propagation in turbid media (i.e., media in which scattering predominates over absorption), with applications to biological tissue.
Since its foundation, the lab has been a pioneer in the introduction of tecnologies for clinical applications, with emphasis in Neuroscience and Neurotechnology. More recently, we have also been studying cancer mechanisms and its therapies. In all cases, the main goal is on translation of the acquired knowledge from fundamental research to its application in the biological and clinical scenarios. We achieve our goals by employing a multidisciplinary approach involving fields such as Physics, Chemistry, Computation, Engineering, Biology and Medicine.
