A pioneer in biomedical optical imaging, Tuan Vo-Dinh’s research has focused on the development of advanced technologies for the protection of the environment and the improvement of human health. His research activities involve nano-biophotonics, nanosensors, laser spectroscopy, molecular imaging, medical diagnostics, cancer detection, chemical sensors, biosensors, and biochips. He has invented numerous non-invasive life-saving devices to detect and diagnose toxins, biological damage, and disease that rely on laser and fiberoptic scans rather than surgery or biopsy. One of his earliest patents was for a dosimeter badge that alerted workers to exposure to toxic chemicals. He has since developed similar detection devices to warn of genetic damage, cancer, and diabetes… Continue reading.
