Abstract: Dr. Gareau’s work involves the application of multimodal 3D confocal microscopy and other biophotonics tools to medical needs. His talk will include discussion of a novel microscopy and software algorithm approach for the rapid screening of cancer margins. He will focus on the scientific details and clinical translation of this technology, which promises to detect skin cancer faster, more effectively, and less painfully while reducing costs. The approach involves specific optical imaging modalities that would not require retraining of the medical practitioners who would use it.
Dr. Dan Gareau received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering with a minor in physics from the University of Vermont in 1999. During graduate studies, he received his M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology, Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from the Oregon Health and Science University, and graduated the Biomedical Optics Program with highest honors. In 2005 he joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as a postdoctoral research fellow researching line-scanning and multimodal confocal microscopy. Dr. Gareau has been published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics, the British Journal of Dermatology, the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the Journal of Microscopy and the Journal of Surgical research. Dr. Gareau is currently a Clinical Instructor at Rockefeller University focusing focuses on biophotonics to use lasers and light in therapeutics and diagnostic medicine.
