Center for Biomedical OCT Research and Translation

Brett Bouma, Ph.D.

Center Overview

The Center for Biomedical OCT Research and Translation (CBORT) pioneers and provides access to microscopic imaging instruments for biologic and clinical research. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has evolved over the last two decades to become a standard of care for diagnostic ophthalmic imaging and is poised to make significant impact in the fields of cardiology and gastrointestinal endoscopy. Access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, however, has been limited to a relatively few research laboratories and the optimization of instruments for new biomedical applications has hindered the investigation of new opportunities. A major focus of CBORT will be to cultivate strategic research collaborations and respond to a pressing need for application-specific OCT instrumentation and hardware.
