Buckley Lab at 2019 SPIE Photonics West Conference

Earlier this month (2/2-2/9), the Buckley Lab attended the 2019 SPIE Photonics West Conference in San Francisco. The conference helped us stay up to date with all of the current optics research that our colleagues are involved in, and we were grateful for the opportunities to present our work.

Dr. Buckley gave a talk summarizing our most recent work published in the Neurobiology of Disease journal on possible mechanistic links between cerebral blood flow and neuroinflammation after repetitive mild traumatic brain injury.

Dr. Paul Lee talked about how we have demonstrated the feasibility of a low-cost, noninvasive diffuse correlation spectroscopy to quantify microvascular cerebral blood flow in children with sickle cell disease.

Our grad student, Eashani, talked about the accuracy, validity, and repeatability of using small separation DCS to measure cerebral blood flow in mouse models, which was also the subject of her recently published paper.

We learned a lot alongside our colleagues, and we can’t wait for next year’s conference!
