"Fiber-optics: from biosensing to theranostics"


Optical fibers can not only be used to detect biomarkers and achieve early diagnosis of diseases, but also can be used for the treatment of disease. In this talk, I will report our recent progresses in the sensitivity enhancement of optical fiber biosensors and the development of optical fiber probe for cancer sensing and therapy. The functional optical fiber biosensors are capable of detecting the target biomolecules with high sensitivity, ultra-small sample requirement, and rapid response. The functional integrated optical fiber needles can perform rapid in-vivo tumor detection, and can release heat or drugs to directly tackle malinant tumors.


Short bio: Yang Ran is a Professor in the Institute of Photonics Technology, Jinan University, Guangzhou, China. He received the Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Jinan University in 2013.
