SPIE Fellow Tuan Vo-Dinh is R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering, professor of chemistry, and director of The Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics at Duke University (USA). His research has focused on the development of advanced technologies for the protection of the environment and the improvement of human health. His research activities involve nano-biophotonics, nanosensors, laser spectroscopy, molecular imaging, medical diagnostics, cancer detection, chemical sensors, biosensors, and biochips.
Biomedical engineers at Duke University have engineered a method for simultaneously detecting the presence of multiple specific microRNAs in RNA extracted from tissue samples without the need for labeling or target amplification.
Spectroscopy for Medicine: From SERS, Laser-Induced Fluorescence, and Biosensors to Analytical Nanotools
Working at the frontiers of biotechnology, fiberoptics, lasers technique and molecular spectroscopy, Tuan Vo-Dinh of Duke University has developed multiple sensor technologies useful for medical research and diagnostics.
Tuan Vo-Dinh, the R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson Professor of Biomedical Engineering, professor of chemistry, and director of The Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics at Duke University, has been awarded the 2019 Sir George Stokes Award by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Vo-Dinh was recognized for his "outstanding and sustained contributions to analytical science through innovations in the field of photonics, spectroscopy, molecular biology and nanotechnology."
Duke photonics expert Tuan Vo-Dinh, director of the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics, R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson professor of biomedical engineering and professor of chemistry, will be among a distinguished roster of speakers in Paris on May 16, inaugurating the first “International Day of Light” at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) headquarters.
By combining an FDA-approved cancer immunotherapy with an emerging tumor-roasting nanotechnology, Dr. Vo-Dinh and group improved the efficacy of both therapies in a proof-of-concept study using mice.
