Microscopes inside the body.

We create miniaturized yet powerful diagnostic technologies for rapidly visualizing tissue microstructure and function over entire organ surfaces.


Welcome Li Qin, Nazihah and Stefanie!

Rachel’s preprint is posted! “Multi-beam miniaturized volumetric scanning microscopy with a single 1-dimensional actuation”

We got a Manufacturing, Trade and Connectivity Individual Research Grant (MTC IRG)! Many thanks to our grant co-investigator Wonkeun at NTU. The project will start in April and run for 3 years.

We presented at the Photonics West conference in San Francisco! Check out our abstracts, all first-authored by our research officers:
Alex: “Fibre optic illuminated fluorescence microscopy with ultraviolet surface excitation”
Joel: “Conditional normalizing flow for variational single image super-resolution on microscopy images”
Rachel: “Piezoelectric bender actuator scanning endomicroscope”

Our lab’s first preprint “Deep ultraviolet-excited fluorescence histology with fibre optic illumination for tissue microtopography and quantitative mapping” is posted! Congrats to Alex, Ko Hui and the team.

Reimagining the endoscope

From ultracompact laser scanners to point of care optical systems, we strive for instant diagnosis at the cellular level, by the patient bedside, in the operating room.

Microscopic mapping of entire organs

Bridging surgery and pathology

Hardware and analytics for assessing tissue before, and immediately after excision to enable real-time surgical guidance and margin evaluation.

Our team

Skilled in electrical, mechanical, optical engineering and artificial intelligence. Focused on challenges in human health and disease.
