Biophotonics in applied medicine

Lund University Medical Laser Center (LUMLAC) is acting as a virtual platform, consisting of research teams bridging biophotonic science together predominantly in the faculties of medicine and engineering.

Our main aims and current progress

  • Biophotonics is an ascending research field which have provided the opportunity of developing new  rational, reliable and non-invasive diagnostic tools in health care – such as characterization and monitoring of tissue.

  • By predetermining the tumour margin of the affected tissue prior to surgery would reduce the chances of leaving malignant cells and reduce the amount of surgical procedures, thus greatly benefitting the patient.

  • Monitoring oxygen and water vapour concentrations in preterm in lung tissue.
