The Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology advances research, development, and application of new optical/photonic tools and technology in medicine and the life sciences. CBST's unique location and environment enables engineers to collaborate with basic scientists and physicians at the UC Davis Medical Center to translate new biotechnologies from the benchtop to bedside. Projects supported by CBST include: super-resolution optical microscopies, advanced imaging and manipulation of living cells and biological systems, engineered fluorescent proteins, label-free cell analysis by Raman scattering spectroscopy, molecular sensors and assays, and in vivo diagnostics using advanced endoscopy.
