Biophotonics: Vibrational Spectroscopic Diagnostics
- Matthew J Baker, Katherine A. Hollywood, Caryn S Hughes
- February 2016
DescriptionBiophotonic diagnostics/biomedical spectroscopy can revolutionise the medical environment by providing a responsive and objective diagnostic environment. This book aims to explain the fundamentals of the physical techniques used combined with the particular requirements of analysing medical/clinical samples as a resource for any interested party. In addition, it will show the potential of this field for the future of medical science and act as a driver for translational across many different biological problems/questions.
About EditorsMatthew Baker is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, University of Strathclyde. His research aims are to understand the composition and behaviour of molecules within complex matrices related to real-world detection challenges with a specific focus on developing spectroscopic biofluid diagnostics. Caryn Hughes obtained a PhD entitled 'Development of FTIR for Drug Response Analysis' at the University of Manchester in 2011 and has since worked as an interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Research Associate in groups including the Bioanalytical Science Research Group (led by Matthew Baker) at the University of Strathclyde. Katherine Hollywood obtained her PhD from the School of Chemistry at the University of Manchester, focusing on using a variety of analytical techniques to investigate the onset of skin disease. Her research continues to use Raman spectroscopy and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics to investigate mammalian systems.
