Prof. Serhat Tozburun
Assistant Professor at İzmir Biomedicine and Genome Ctr
SPIE Involvement:
Area of Expertise:
optical nerve stimulation , laser tissue interactions , optical coherence tomography , wavelength swept laser source
Profile Summary

Serhat Tozburun received his B.S. degree in Physics from Middle East Technical University in 2005, M.S. degree in Physics from Koc University in 2007, and Ph.D. degree in the Optical Science and Engineering from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte in 2012, respectively. In his PhD dissertation research, he worked on optical stimulation of prostate Cavernous nerves, using infrared laser radiation as a potential alternative for intraoperative identification and preservation of the Cavernous nerves to conventional nerve mapping devices. After graduation, he joined to the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School to participate in innovative research studies of the development of optically subsampled optical coherence tomography and a rapid, phase-stable optical coherence tomography system. At Wellman, he also focused on developing a method using novel apparatus for treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, which is a precancerous condition of esophagus and associated with esophageal cancer (adenocarcinoma of esophagus).
Currently, he is a faculty in IBG-Izmir at Dokuz Eylul University. At IBG-Izmir, he will start his own research laboratory, called Translational Biophotonics and Optical Imaging Lab. The broad goal of the research lab will be to develop and implement optical techniques and non-invasive optical coherence imaging modalities to address biomedical challenges.
