Tissue Imaging & Spectroscopy Laboratory

Tissue Imaging & Spectroscopy Laboratory

Welcome to the Tissue Imaging & Spectroscopy lab at Temple University! The lab focuses on assessment of tissues at the molecular, cellular, and structural level through application of state-of-the-art vibrational spectroscopy, including mid- and near-infrared spectroscopy and spectroscopic imaging, in concert with complementary techniques. We develop spectral imaging methods for clinical and laboratory assessment of bone, cartilage, meniscus, ligament, tendon, skin and cardiovascular tissues, as well as for developing engineered tissues, and for assessment of plant composition. In addition, we're interested in the effect of biological interventions, such as anti-resorptive agents, on bone quality and mechanical properties.
