New Lab for Optics in Medicine


The Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth has purchased laboratory space at the new Williamson Translational Research Building, located at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Approximately nine Principal Investigators and their research teams share this contemporary open-concept lab, hosting post-doctoral researchers from many countries and teaching Thayer graduate and undergraduate students.  The substance of ongoing biomedical research at each bench varies widely, from ultrasound, optics and nanotechnology, to prosthetic devices, bioimpedance and cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Co-location of Thayer School Investigators with Clinicians at DHMC through this move to the Williamson building has proven invaluable to bringing about translational research, allowing the exchange of novel ideas and the advancement of technology innovation and development.

Here the Optics in Medicine group meets regularly to review progress on research projects.


Animal studies are carried out in the small animal surgery room.




Two Tissue Culture rooms enable tumor research to progress.




In celebration of our move to this new space and the 2015 holiday season, Optics in Medicine faculty, staff and researchers enjoyed lunch at Jesse’s restaurant.
