Current Research Interests

Irving J. Bigio received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Michigan in 1974. From then until 2000 he was a scientific staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory (New Mexico), including service as Leader of the Laser Science and Applications Program (1988-1994). He has been a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Israel, a Visiting Professor at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark and a Guest Fellow of Pembroke College at the University of Oxford, England. Dr. Bigio holds a number of patents for biomedical optics instrumentation, and has received three R&D-100 Awards for the development of biomedical optical devices. Since February 2001 he has been at Boston University, where he is Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Physics, and Medicine. Dr. Bigio serves on several government advisory panels and on external advisory boards for companies and academic institutions. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, and is a member of the American Physical Society and the SPIE. In addition to other research projects in biomedical optics, Dr. Bigio recently led a multi-institutional program under the NIH/NCI Network for Translational Research in Optical Imaging, comprising several medical research centers in the US and Europe. Dr. Bigio is a Guest Professor (Honorary) of the University College London, Department of Surgery.
