Zhen Qiu, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Michigan State University, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Zhen Qiu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering, Michigan State University, MI. He received his PhD degree from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. He finished the post-doctoral training in the Department of Radiology and Molecular Imaging Program Stanford (MIPS), School of Medicine, Stanford University, CA. His current research interests include Biomedical Optics, Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics, multi-modal targeted imaging using novel contrast agents, wearable and implantable medical devices, ultrafast laser applications. He aims to study both cancer biology and translational medicine with custom-made micro-systems enabled ultra-thin in-vivo sensing/imaging tools. Supported by NSF, NIH, and DOE, his current research is focused on miniaturized optical imaging system development for early cancer detection and imaging guided surgical navigation, such as widefield imaging guided micro-scanner based confocal microendoscope, multi-photon/SHG handheld microscope, and SERS nanoparticles based Raman spectroscopy.
