Biomedical Imaging and Radiation Technology (BIRT) Lab

Our mission is to innovate, develop, and apply biomedical technology to empower cancer research.

BIRTLab is a highly multidisciplinary research group involving medical physics, biomedical optics, radiation therapy, computational modeling, engineering, and biology, as well as industrial components. The essential goal of our group is to translate our laboratorial developments to the scientific community, providing investigators unprecedented research capabilities in seeking a cure for cancer.

We are a group of people always welcoming new ideas to advance cancer research.
