Research

Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic is a unique translational center, moving technologies rapidly from the researcher’s blackboard to the laboratory benchtop to the patient bedside.  Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic houses 22 faculty and approximately 150 individuals from more than 11 departments.  Experts from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences convene in this interdisciplinary environment, crossing departmental barriers, to develop breakthrough technologies to transform human health.

Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic researchers are developing optics and photonics technologies with the potential to radically change the way health care is delivered; diagnosing disease in its earliest stages, non-invasively monitoring patient health and discovering new therapies and conditions that were previously considered untreatable.

Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic research teams unite with their diverse backgrounds and experience to create new concepts, ideas and computational models at the blackboard; cutting-edge optics and photonics technologies at the benchtop and life-changing diagnostic and therapeutic devices for patients at the bedside.  Each of the research cores at Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic work hand-in-hand and complement one another to advance health care.
