Prof. Ozcan is featured in the Smithsonian Magazine
The Smithsonian magazine is featuring Professor Aydogan Ozcan in
its May issue including the extensive applications of his
telemedicine instrument, the lens-less scope attached to a
smartphone, and his mobile health-related work. The article
written by Ariel Sabar also appears online in the Smithsonian.
Ariel Sabar met with Prof. Ozcan in his UCLA laboratory where he was introduced to a showcase of the evolution of the holographic imaging devices in their various applications. Furthermore, he had a first-hand experience in using the device to test the mercury level in Marina del Rey. Sabar also met with graduate researchers and a UCLA medical doctor, who collaborates with Professor Ozcan.
The Smithsonian Institute was established in 1846 from the legacy of James Smithson, a British scientist, bequeathed to the United States with a vision “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men,” subject to a legislation signed by U.S. President James K. Polk.
