      Farsiu Wins ARVO Foundation/Pfizer Ophthalmics Carl Camras Translational Research Award

      Sina Farsiu , an associate professor at Duke University with appointments in biomedical engineering, ophthalmology, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science, has won the 2017 Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) Foundation/Pfizer Ophthalmics Carl Camras Translational Research Award . Reserved for scientists under age 45, the award honors excellence in research and fundamental scientific discoveries, concepts and novel technologies. The discovery that each recipient is nominated for must also have led to, or have promise of leading to, clinical applications. Farsiu will receive the award, which includes a $12,000 honorarium, at the 2017 ARVO Annual Meeting held ...

      Sina Farsiu: Biomedical Engineer Processes an Avalanche of Images

      Sina Farsiu wants to figure out how to peer into your soul . . . or at least your brain. An expert in designing computer image processing algorithms, Farsiu is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Duke Medicine who recently accepted a primary appointment in the Pratt biomedical engineering department with the hopes of strengthening collaborations across the university. “When President Bush said he looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and got a sense of his soul, he was actually on to something,” said Farsiu, who has a long history of collaborating with peers in Duke’s engineering school. “The retina is part ...

    4. Light Can Detect Pre-Cancerous Colon Cells

      Light Can Detect Pre-Cancerous Colon Cells
      DURHAM, N.C. – After demonstrating that light accurately detected pre-cancerous cells in the lining of the esophagus, Duke University bioengineers turned their technology to the colon and have achieved similar results in a series of preliminary experiments. This technology could be a non-invasive way for physicians to detect abnormal cells, or dysplasia, which have the potential of turning cancerous. These cells are in the epithelium, or lining, of various tissues, including the esophagus and colon. Current biopsy techniques require physicians to take many random tissue samples, and for some disorders of the colon, these procedures can be disfiguring and life-changing ...

    5. New Technique Sees Into Tissue At Greater Depth, Resolution

      New Technique Sees Into Tissue At Greater Depth, Resolution
      DURHAM, N.C. By coupling a kicked-up version of microscopy with miniscule particles of gold, Duke University scientists are now able to peer so deep into living tissue that they can see molecules interacting. If future studies in animal models prove fruitful, the researchers believe that their new approach can have a wide spectrum of clinical applications, from studying the margins of a tumor as it is removed from the body to assessing the effects of anti-cancer agents on the blood vessels that nourish tumors. The Duke bioengineers combined tightly focused heat with optical coherence tomography (OCT), which has often ...
