Ken Chu, PhD
Research Fellow
My work is on micro-OCT, a new OCT technique with micron-level resolution in every direction. One example application is cystic fibrosis; the high resolution μOCT system enables us to directly see microscopic cilia as they beat. We are also developing probes for in vivo imaging that will enable real-time μOCT imaging from within airways and arteries.

My research activities will be directed toward advancing the detection of atherosclerotic plaques though intracoronary Raman spectroscopy.
 
 
Michalina Gora, PhD
Instructor
My research interests include developing next generation gastrointestinal microscopy system using high-speed OFDI technique combined with a catheter that does not require endoscopy assistance and patient sedation. To achieve that goal I am focusing on system and catheter design and fabrication, and testing the safety, feasibility and efficacy of the technology in human clinical studies.

Amna Rizvi Soomro, MBBS
Clinical Coordinator II
I am a doctor by profession but am currently working at the Wellman lab in the role of a Clinical Research Coordinator. I am extensively involved in recruiting subjects for our studies and all the IRB related work and other documentation that needs to go in place with the study. In the near future, I will also be analyzing the data collected during our studies.

The topic of my thesis research is to investigate Raman spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy for coronary atherosclerosis. We are conducting ex vivo studies using these methods to analyze molecular information from coronary plaques, which is supplementary to structural images. We will combine these modalities with OCT/OFDI for in vivo imaging.
