Arash DadkhahMay 2015- Biomedical engineering PhD student, Arash Dadkhah received the Biomedical Research Initiative (BRI) 2015 FIU Summer Research Award. The BRI award is designed to fund students in the biomedical sciences through a program development award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (MBRS RISE Program). Arash is currently working in the Optical Imaging Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Godavarty, researching on near-infrared optical spectroscopy imaging for monitoring of diabetic wound monitoring process.  The objective of the proposed research is to modify the optical scanner (NIROS) such that it can perform real-time hemodynamic imaging in-vivo on diabetic foot ulcers.

Congratulations Arash!
