Post on Sexton’s Research

The research of Kristian Sexton, a fourth year PhD student in the Optics in Medicine Laboratory, was featured on the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth’s Machine Shop blog.

Kristian’s projects are in the field of biomedical technologies, and his research project is part of a larger Dartmouth initiative titled “Fluorescence guided neurosurgery.”  Sexton’s work explores the use of fluorescence to help surgeons and medical practitioners differentiate between diseased and healthy tissue.
