Welcome to the Laser Biomedical Research Center, a NIBIB-supported Biomedical Technology
Resource Center, providing integrative photonic solutions to complex problems in biological
research, pharmaceutical development, and medical diagnosis.
Building on the strengths of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wellman Center
for Photomedicine at MGH, and John Hopkins University in engineering, physical, and biological
sciences, the LBRC runs a successful Technology Research and
Development (TRD) program focusing on developing biomedical imaging and diagnostic
technologies based on fluorescent, interferometric, and vibronic spectroscopies. The TRD efforts
also incorporate new direction focusing on the development of nanoscale probe toolkit for biomedical applications.
Equally important, the center maintains a diverse array of Collaborative and Service
research projects in diverse areas ranging from cancer biology, cardiology, neurobiology, stem cell
biology to infectious and blood diseases.
