Cellphone Microscope Inventor Honored with Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award
Date:1/9/2013

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Aydogan Ozcan, associate professor, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), has been awarded the Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. The award recognizes his seminal contributions to computational imaging, sensing and bio-photonics technologies impacting telemedicine and global health challenges.

“Dr. Ozcan is clearly one of the most innovative biophotonics researchers that I have met during the last decade and he stands out as truly exceptional with regards to clear-sightedness in research, ingenuity of approach, effectiveness in completion of the research projects and publication record,” said Bahram Jalali, Northrop Grumman Endowed Chair and Professor, UCLA. “His work has already been published in the most prestigious academic journals, and has resulted in more than 20 licensed patents as well as several major international awards; and therefore the impact of his work is evident.”

Ozcan provided an overview of his lab’s work in a recent video interview with the SPIE Newsroom.

An SPIE Fellow, Ozcan has authored numerous papers for SPIE symposia. He has served as a program committee member for SPIE Photonics West since 2009. He was honored with the SPIE Early Career Achievement Award in 2011.

He will receive the award on 2 February during the BiOS Hot Topics session at SPIE Photonics West 2013 in San Francisco. He will be the first recipient of the award, established in 2012.

The Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award is presented annually for extraordinary achievements in biophotonics technology development that show strong promise or potential impact in biology, medicine, and biomedical optics. The award targets achievements that span disciplines and may include elements of basic research, technology development, and clinical translation.

SPIE presents several yearly awards that recognize outstanding individual and team technical accomplishments and meritorious service to the Society, and invites nominations from the community. Nominations may be made through 1 October of any given year and are considered active for three years from the submission date.
