Profile Summary

Irving J. Bigio received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Michigan in 1974. From then until 2000, he was a member of the scientific staff at Los Alamos National Laboratory (New Mexico), including service as Leader of the Laser Science and Applications Program (1988-1994). During leaves of absence, he has been a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Israel, a Visiting Professor at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and a Guest Fellow of Pembroke College at the University of Oxford. Since 2001 he has been Professor at Boston University, with appointments in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Physics, and School of Medicine. Dr. Bigio has published extensively in laser physics, nonlinear optics and biomedical optics, including a new textbook by Cambridge University Press (with co-author Sergio Fantini): Quantitative Biomedical Optics. Dr. Bigio is currently focusing on the development of diagnostic optical spectroscopy for clinical applications, on optical monitoring of drug delivery and response to treatment, and on the imaging/sensing of basic cellular dynamics and neuronal activity. His strong interest in the translation of optical technologies has led to large-scale clinical studies with clinical research collaborators in several medical centers. Dr. Bigio is a Fellow of the OSA, the SPIE, and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering.
