Post-Doctoral Fellowship

We are seeking a qualified individual to lead a funded research project to develop image-guided biopsy tools for the lung. Primary responsibilities include:

  • design, development, and validation of catheters for image-guided biopsy
  • development of combined OCT and fluorescence systems
  • ex vivo and in vivo studies
  • pilot study design and execution
  • publication of scientific results at international conferences and in peer-reviewed journals

This is a one-year term position, with the possibility of extension for a second year, based on performance and funding sources. Read the fellowship posting for more details.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter that expresses their research interests, curriculum vitae, and two references to Rebecca White (rebecca.white@bccrc.ca) with “OCT PDF” in the subject line.

Blue Light Shines Brightly As A Highly Useful Oral Cancer Surgery Tool

Fluorescence visualization may drastically reduce local cancer recurrence by helping surgeons better visualize the diseased area around a cancerous lesion. New findings from a study nearly a decade in the making suggest fluorescence visualization during oral cancer surgery drastically improves the accuracy of the removal of cancerous tissue. This significantly reduces local recurrence rates of oral cancer. Learn more here.
