Raman spectroscopy and its applications in medical, biological and material sciences
Raman spectroscopy is an information-rich, label-free, non-invasive imaging technique that is ideal for many applications. It uses laser light scattering to provide a chemical fingerprint at each point of the analyzed area and identifies the molecules present in samples.
We can do Raman spectroscopic and imaging experiments to obtain molecular-level information on most samples in solid/liquid phases. We routinely study bacteria, fungi, animal cells, tissues etc. We also perform advanced multivariate statistical analysis such as SVM, MCR etc. to extract pure chemical signals from spectra.
I would like to collaborate with molecular biologists, pharmacologists and doctors to expand applications of Raman spectroscopy to these areas.
