Optical techniques for the life sciences

Techniques such as Raman spectroscopy, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy and laser fabricated microchips are finding applications in molecular and cellular biology as microscopic samples can be precisely handled and examined. This project will investigate methods to combine these technologies in order to study single biological cells with future applications in disease detection and understanding cellular changes and interactions.
