Together, talented researchers and clinicians from the UCI Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Biological Sciences and Physical Sciences convene at Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic to tackle complicated medical challenges using cutting-edge, non-invasive or minimally-invasive diagnostics and therapies to improve human health.

The Institute was intentionally designed as an interdisciplinary center with basic science and technology development combined with a laser medical clinic under one roof. This model accelerates the movement of ideas and technologies, while fostering an environment for enhanced communication and collaboration between researchers and clinicians.

The Institute draws researchers who create new concepts, ideas and models at the classroom blackboard; innovators who develop cutting-edge optics and photonics technologies at the laboratory benchtop; clinicians who test life-changing diagnostic and therapeutic devices for patients in the medical clinic and experts through our partnership with UCI Applied Innovation who assist in commercializing new devices to help those in our community and beyond.
