Centre for Biophotonics
Biophotonics involves the development and application of optical techniques, particularly imaging, to the study of biological molecules, cells and tissue, exploiting the molecular specificity and non-invasive nature of optical methods. It is a highly interdisciplinary area, involving expertise across the physical-life sciences interface.
The Centre brings together a strong research activity in King's College London in Biophotonics, and related activity in Nanophotonics, from the Schools of Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Natural & Mathematical Sciences and the Dental Institute.
The research groups interact closely, through joint grants, regular combined group meetings and journal clubs, joint seminars and joint PhD supervision. Research includes activities in advanced optical imaging modalities including fluorescence lifetime, super-resolution microscopy, CARS and Raman, and high-throughput and intra-vital imaging platforms.
Nikon Imaging Centre
The Nikon Imaging Centre at King’s is one of a group of world leading imaging centres providing researchers with the latest in cutting edge technology for imaging and microscopy.
