The Vo-Dinh Lab is a part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Pratt School of Engineering, and the Chemistry Department of the School of Arts & Science, Duke University. Together with a number of other research groups, the Vo-Dinh Lab is also a part of the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics, of which Professor Vo-Dinh is the director.
The research of the Vo-Dinh Lab is focused on the development of advanced technologies for the protection of the environment and the improvement of human health. The research activities involve biophotonics, nanoplasmonics, nanosensors, laser spectroscopy, molecular imaging, medical diagnostics, cancer detection and therapy, theranostics, chemical sensors, biosensors, and biochips.
- Plasmonics / Surface-Enhanced Raman scattering nanoprobes for medical diagnostics
- NanoBiosensors for real-time monitoring of molecular pathways in single cells
- Biochips for the detection of diseases at the point-of-care and global health
- NanoImaging / Near-field scanning microscopy for bioimaging
- HyperSpectral Imaging (optical biopsy) for cancer diagnosis
- Cancer Diagnostics
- Field Instrumentation
- Acoustics & Photoacoustics ultrasound technologies for medical diagnostics
Our laboratories are located in the Fitzpatrick Center (FCIEMAS) and the French Family Science Center, both situated on Duke University West Campus.
