Our research focus is the advancement of flow cytometry and related biophotonics techniques. We have a particular interest in the excited-state dynamics of fluorophores, proteins, and particles when combined with cellular analyses. Our laboratory conducts transiently measured fluorescence decay experiments, and we are continuoulsy exploring the following general areas:
- Flow-cytometry: analysis, sorting, applications thereof
- Time-dependent photonics: fluorescence decay kinetics, phase-filtering
- Biomaterials: reporters for Raman, Raleigh scatter, and fluorescence
- Cytometric molecular imaging: in vivo diagnostic systems
- Image and digital signal processing: DAQ and computational methods
Through combinations of the technologies listed above, we ask questions related to issues with in vitro cellular systems such as (i) can intrinsic transition state kinetics provide new ways to characterize, spearate, sort, and analyze populations of cells; (ii) how can one best tailor time-dependent assays to better exploit or suppress autofluorescence, extrinsic fluorescence, or Raman signals, and (iii) will rare events and new fluorescence decay phenomena be revealed with such high-throughput techniques?
