Faculty Interests Research Description

Steven Adie Steven Adie

Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Adie's research program focusses on the development and application of OCT-based imaging for basic science investigations as well as clinical applications. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging modality capable of 3D label-free imaging of tissue structure and function in vivo. learn more

Esther Angert

Microbiology
My laboratory studies intestinal symbionts. One group of bacteria of particular interest is the Epulopiscium family. Some of these intestinal symbionts of tropical surgeonfish are among the largest known bacteria, with individuals reaching lengths of 0.6 mm. These cells also reproduce in an unusual manner. learn more
