Professor Aydogan Ozcan’s research on lens-free microscopy received the 2013 Microscopy Today Innovation Award at the Microscopy and Microanalysis conference in Indianapolis on August 4-8, 2013. The magazine, Microscopy Today, annually honors pioneering systems and devices which promote advancement in the field of microscopy.
Professor Ozcan’s lens-free microscopy technology is a cost-effective and handy alternative in studying micro- and nano-scale objects for biomedical solutions through the use of e.g., smart phones. This research has brought several commendations and attention from the academe, industry and government agencies. It has also propelled Professor Ozcan and his research team to further its applications and also resulted in a start-up company (Holomic LLC) that is based in Los Angeles.
