Biography

Professor Grundfest's current research focuses on excimer lasers for medical applications. He investigates the cardiovascular, ophthalmologic, orthopaedic and neurosurgical applications of this technology. Biologic spectroscopy, the use of spectral data to identify and classify tissue, is another major focus of Prof. Grundfest's research. He employs multiple techniques, including time-resolved spectroscopy, hyperspectro-imaging, photo bleaching and laser attenuation spectroscopy for the study of biologic systems. Clinically, he is actively involved in the development of minimally invasive imaging and surgical tools.
