Cancer Focused Research:

Dr. Backman is developing novel biophotonics technologies for early detection, diagnosis, and screening of colon, lung, pancreatic, and esophageal cancers. He has developed four-dimensional elastic light scattering fingerprinting, low-coherence enhanced backscattering spectroscopy, and partial-wave spectroscopic microscopy to assess nanoscale architecture of living tissue, far beyond what conventional microscopy can reveal. His research spans from technology development to large-scale clinical trials.
