Welcome to the Laser Biomedical Research Center, a NIBIB-Supported Biomedical Technology Resource Center of the National Institutes of Health.

Building on the strengths of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in engineering, physical, and biological sciences, the Laser Biomedical Research Center (LBRC) provides integrative photonic solutions to complex problems in biological research, pharmaceutical development, and medical diagnosis. Equally important, the center maintains a diverse array of collaborative and service research projects covering many biomedical areas that includes neuronal connectomics, liver fibrosis diagnosis, nerve regeneration imaging, improving selectivity of photodynamic therapy, sickle cell biomechanics, identifying mesenchymal stem cell, novel imaging with carbon nanotube, and developing chemometric algorithms for cancer biopsy specimens.
