Biomedical Optics Research Group

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University


Welcome to the Biomedical Optics Research Group at Northeastern University. Our laboratory  was established in 2008 by Associate Professor Mark Niedre and studies the application of optical engineering to biomedicine.  By nature the field is highly inter-disciplinary and requires the integration of diverse backgrounds such as optical design, software and hardware engineering, image reconstruction, biology, chemistry and medicine.  Please have a look around our site and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
