Approach and Findings

The main research focus of our group is to develop minimally invasive optical techniques for in vivo imaging and monitoring of cells and tissues as well as therapeutic applications of lasers. The diagnostic techniques will help to answer important biological questions, such as:

The therapeutic techniques allow us to target cellular and subcellular structures by means of selective absorption of endogenous or exogenous chromophores. Selective targeting may be helpful for treating various pathologies, such as retinal diseases or destruction of tumors, without causing adverse side effects to healthy tissue.
