Clemens Alt, PhD
I research lasers in ophthalmology for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. My interests include therapeutic selective targeting of ocular cells (e.g., retinal pigment epithelium cells) for the treatment of retinal diseases, adaptive-optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and in vivo retinal flow cytometry.

Xinjun Fu, MD
Research Scientist
My research here at Wellman will focus on tracking cells in live tissue with in vivo imaging techniques, trying to understand the role of progenitor cells and inflammatory cells in tissue repair following injury, and develop therapeutic strategies to promote tissue repair.

Changhwan Kim, PhD
Research Fellow
Dr. Changhwan Kim is an laser ablation specialist who will be working with Dr. Charles Lin's group. He received his Ph.D degree in Mechanical Engineering from Kyungpook National University in Republic of Korea in 2014, and has a specific interest in pulse laser micromachining for glass material and laser tissue ablation. Dr. Kim's research at Wellman will focus on exploring the laser ablation of tissues such as skin and bone.

Joel Spencer, PhD
Research Fellow
I am interested in the development and application of intravital microscopy to study mesenchymal stem cell homing to various tissues, T cell response to islet transplants, and several other topics. My interests also include the development of in vivo optical methods to study the role of oxygen in the homing and retention of hematopoietic stem cells to bone marrow.
Wei Sun
Research Fellow
I am researching two-photon microscopic in-vivo imaging implemented with adaptive optics to enhance penetration depth and two-photon flow cytometry.
Raphael Turcotte
Graduate Student
My current research focuses on the development of optical tools to probe and interact directly with the bone marrow of live animals. Guided by optical microscopy, I seek to modify and analyze the hematopoietic stem cells microenvironment in the bone marrow at the single cell level.
