The research at the integrated Biofunctional Imaging and Therapeutics Laboratory (iBIT Lab) focuses on utilizing non-invasive acoustic and optical imaging techniques with nanomaterials and biological models to understand the structural, functional, molecular and biomechanical heterogeneity of pathologies such as cancer. The triangle in the iBIT lab logo depicts the three directions where biofunctional imaging will be utilized to improve patient care: 1. Guide surgical methods 2. Predict therapeutic response and 3. Design effective therapeutic strategies.

We are a team of Biomedical engineers with interdisciplinary background in Electronics, signal processing, molecular biology, optics and nanotechnology with collaborations with clinicians and researchers in the  Boston Area. We are always looking for enthusiastic highly motivated individuals to join our team. Check out the current openings here.
