Join an exciting conversation on analytical and functional biophotonics this Thursday July, 17 at the university’s BioPark in Baltimore starting at 5:30pm. Organized by the university’s UM Ventures initiative and led by NIH’s Amir H. Gandjbakhache, PhD, the presentation will cover “Biophotonics Methods to Investigate Neuro Biomarkers in Austistic Spectrum Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury,” and will be followed by a Q&A session and a wine and cheese reception.

Dr. Amir Gandjbakhche  is a Senior Investigator  and Head of  the Section on Analytical and Functional Biophotonics of the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD). He obtained his Ph.D. in physics with a biomedical engineering specialty from the University of Paris in 1989.  He is a Fellow of SPIE, the largest society of optical engineers. Dr. Gandjbakhche leads a research group that uses different optical sources of contrast such as endogenous or exogenous fluorescent labels, absorption (e.g., hemoglobin or chromophore concentration) in order to devise quantitative theories at the board, and designs instrumentation at the bench, and brings the imaging system to the bedside. Two areas of interest are the use of near infrared spectroscopy to assess cognitive function  in Traumatic Brain Injury and Autistic Spectrum Disorder patients, and using specific fluorescently labeled HER2 imaging agent to monitor  monoclonal antibody therapy of breast tumor.
