Photoacoustic Imaging and Spectroscopy

The research activities of the Photoacoustic (PA) Imaging and Spectroscopy Group are focussed on the development of the instrumentation, methodologies, and genetic reporters for molecular an functional imaging through an interdisciplinary research programme that is conducted in collaboration with groups at the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, the Zuse Institute Berlin, the University of Applied Science Wildau, the Max-Delbrück-Centre Berlin-Buch, the Technical University and Charité Berlin and University College London involving physicists, engineers, life scientists and clinicians.
