Research Theme: Cancer Measurement Technology and Data Science
Strategic Theme: Imaging
Viktor Gruev’s lab focuses on borrowing critical concepts from nature to develop ultra-sensitive, compact, lightweight, and conformal imaging sensors capable of recording spectral and polarization properties with high spatial resolution and to bring these new sensory devices to clinical settings such as cancer detection. Clinical trials with breast cancer patients have used his near-infrared fluorescence goggle technology has been used in clinical trials in patients with breast cancer. His research aims to bring medical imaging technology to resource-limited hospitals and the developing world. This paradigm-shifting technology has established a new trend in image-guided surgery. It enables resource-limited hospitals worldwide with much-needed technology to promote value-based health care.
Gruev is the Director of the Biosensors Laboratory. He completed his MS and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2000 and 2004, respectively. He has received numerous awards for his research on imaging sensors and their application in the medical field, including the 2016 IEEE Donald G. Fink Award for an outstanding scientific contribution to the IEEE Society.
