A Scientist Deploys Light And Sound To Reveal The Brain

This NPR feature delves into cutting-edge research by NIBIB grantee Lihong Wang, Ph.D., a professor of biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. In the feature, NIBIB's Richard Conroy, Ph.D., director of the Division of Applied Science & Technology at NIBIB, comments on Wang's ability to adapt concepts from fields such as astronomy to generate new imaging tools that can enable the detection of individual cancer cells in the bloodstream or to visualize oxygen consumption deep within the body.
