Bioengineering Seminar Spring 2021:Designing medical devices with computational biophotonics
February 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Nicholas Durr, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
Computational biophotonics pairs optical system design with the development of intelligent algorithms
to extract meaningful data from interrogated tissues (often via an unintuitive computational image).
With the recent advances in deep learning, there are many exciting opportunities to apply data-driven
models to novel optical imaging systems to create impactful medical devices. I will present our research
in developing and translating computational biophotonics medical devices for a variety of important
healthcare needs, including: (1) improving the management of colorectal cancer with deep learning and
the computational colonoscope, (2) enabling a non-invasive blood count with oblique back-illumination
capillaroscopy, and (3) making eye care accessible in low-resource settings with a low-cost, handheld
