Hillman Lab Research

Our laboratory develops advanced in-vivo optical imaging, microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to investigate the function of living tissue. Our main focus is on understanding the regulation of blood flow in the brain (neurovascular coupling). Additional projects include dermal, cardiac and molecular imaging, brain development, cancer pathogenesis, medical device development and translational medicine.
