Raman Spectroscopy

Principal Investigator: 

Molecules each have their own unique motions and vibrations. The spectrum resulting from these motions are like fingerprints or barcodes, which we can utilize for identification. In the Grant group we use Raman Spectroscopy to identify small/low concentration molecules within a greater heterogenous mixture, such as cell cultures or tissue. Our goal is to make Raman Spectroscopy more easily accessible within a clinical environment for use in cancer diagnosis.
