Would you like to be a BMES Spotlight Member? Please complete the very short questionnarie.
BMES Spotlight Member:
Bernard Choi, Ph.D.
Where do you work?
University of California, Irvine
What does membership in BMES mean to you?
I view membership in BMES as a wonderful opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in fields different from my field of research. I find the BMES Annual Meeting to be stimulating and a great opportunity to network with colleagues.
What is the focus of your work?
My research focuses on study of the microcirculation using photonics tools. I work on development of optical methods and devices to study hemodynamics in both preclinical and clinical studies, and in development of new phototherapies to treat vascular malformations. My lab also works on developing methods to render thick tissue sections transparent for three-dimensional imaging of the microvasculature and other fluorescent microstructures.
Tell us a fun/random fact about you!
Random fact: I first flew on an airplane when I was already 21 years old. I flew into California for the Rose Bowl, and I stayed in Irvine, which by chance is where I happen to live now.
