About the Seminar: 

Endoscopy has changed modern medicine by allowing physicians explore inner organs with minimal trauma. Single fiber endoscopes offer the potential to further increase patient comfort and increase access to remote organs through miniaturization. Current research focusses on sub-millimeter endoscopy using dedicated optical fibers for imaging large volumes of tissue. One such fiber - a double clad fiber - allows many imaging modalities to be performed simultaneously for greater diagnostic sensitivity and specificity. In this presentation, I will present our latest research in fiber optics for miniature endoscopy and discuss potential avenues, including theragnostics: the capability to treat a lesion as you discover it. 

About the Presenter:

Caroline Boudoux, PhD, obtained her PhD in 2007 from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology with the joint mentorship of Brett E. Bouma and Guillermo J. Tearney. She then studied coherent control applied to nonlinear microscopy at École Polytechnique (France) under Emmanuel Beaurepaire and Manuel Joffre before joining the Engineering Physics department of École Polytechnique Montréal in 2007 as an assistant professor. She is now an associate professor and a faculty member of the Biomedical Engineering Institute. She is currently a visiting scholar at Stanford University.

Dr. Boudoux's research focuses on biomedical optics, particularly the translation of optical diagnostics technologies for clinical applications in the fields of laryngology, head and neck surgery and orthopaedics. With her students and collaborators she develops wavelength swept lasers, optical fiber components and custom miniature lenses for confocal endomicroscopy, optical coherence tomography and fluorescent miniature endoscopy.
