Ji-Xin Cheng

Precision Medicine via Engineered Waves: from Bond-selective Imaging to Non-genetic Neuromodulation

Ji-Xin Cheng, PhD
Moustakas Chair Professor in Photonics and Optoelectronics
Boston University

Co-sponsored by Morgridge Institute for Research and the UW SPIE/Optica Chapter

Professor Cheng has devoted his career to precision medicine through the manipulation of photons/waves. Over the past two decades, His team pioneered the development of bond-selective chemical microscopy, including the most recent invention of mid-infrared photothermal microscopy, which utilizes fingerprint signals to discover hidden signatures inside a biological system. More recently, his team invented a panel of tools that precisely stimulate or suppress neuronal activity via laser-induced ultrasound waves and electromagnetic waves. Cheng will present the latest advances in these two directions.
