Wolfson Family Laboratory for Clinical and Biomedical Optics
We are hiring!
Please see Careers at CHOP for a current opening in the Wolfson Family Laboratory for Clinical and Biomedical Optics.
The Wolfson Family Laboratory for Clinical and Biomedical Optics develops and implements diffuse optical technologies to noninvasively monitor cerebral hemodynamics in children.
Although quality of life after critical illness depends largely on brain health, the interplay between the delivery of pediatric critical care and the patient's long-term brain health is poorly understood. The lab team seeks to address this knowledge gap with diffuse optical spectroscopy and correlation methods.
Ultimately, using optical methods, the team hopes to alleviate neurological damage during critical conditions and to improve the quality of life for patients after recovery. Recently, the lab has used optical methods to study the effects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ECMO, cardiopulmonary bypass, and hydrocephalus on brain hemodynamics.
If you are interested in potential collaborations, please do not hesitate to contact the lab's Principal Investigator, Daniel Licht, MD.
