Current Investigations in Biophotonics

Israel Gannot
Professor and Chair
Department of Biomedical Engineering
Tel-Aviv University

Multi-modal Imaging methods are the best choice for early detection and treatment of tumors. Our laboratory is investigating and developing methods aiming to accomplish these goals. We are working on a few methods in parallel, which together can solve this problem at hand. We are working on fluorescence based and photo-thermal functional imaging of bio-energetic changes in tumor surrounding, RF excited specific nano particles optimized by mid infrared transmitting bundles thermal feedback, magneto-acoustic detection of the same particles and RF induced confined heat elevation specifically at tumor surrounding to induce apoptotic/necrotic cell death. The theoretical and experimental bases of those combined synergetic methods will be described and discussed.

About the Speaker
Professor Israel Gannot received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion-Israeli Institute of Technology, Israel in 1981 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel in 1989 and 1994 respectively. Between 1981 and 1987 he served in the IDF medical corps as a section chief in biomedical engineering. Between 1994 and 1997 he held a National academy Sciences post doctoral fellowship at the Electro-optics branch, Office of Science and Technology of the US Food and Drug Administration. Since 1997 he is a member of the Biomedical Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering at Tel-Aviv University where he is currently an associate professor. Between 2002 and 2005 he was a senior research scientist at the National Institutes of Health. Between 2005 and 2007 he was a visiting professor of biomedical engineering in the George Washington University, Washington DC. Prof. Gannot is a fellow of International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE). A fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) and of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). The fellow level was conferred upon for his exceptional achievements in his field of research. He is one of the leaders of the Biophotonics world initiative. He is a chair of conferences and symposia in his field of research on regular basis. He is the author of 60 peer reviewed scientific papers, 90 proceeding papers, 7 book chapters, Biophotonics Books Series editor for McGraw-Hill, and 14 patents. Prof. Gannot is currently the chair of the biomedical engineering department in Tel-Aviv University and Adjunct professor at johns Hopkins, ECE department.
