Metallic nanoantennas designed and fabricated for SERS biosensing
The Group has a long-standing tradition in health-related research focusing on utilising a world-leading expertise in computational and experimental electromagnetics applied to medical imaging. Our vision is to apply a multi-disciplinary approach to solving challenging societal Health problems.
The Group is best-known for its work on breast cancer imaging using a microwave radar-based technique, having developed the world’s first clinical prototype of the Microwave Radar-based Imaging System and performed several clinical trials.
Our current research program is focused on building a 3D microwave imaging system, both radar-based and tomographic, for advanced medical applications:
- Neuro-functional brain imaging (similar to fMRI)
- contrast-enhanced cancer detection
- bone and brain-injury monitoring.
