Biophotonics Summer School 2012
May 21st - June 1st 2012 Urbana-Champaign, Illinois
The Biophotonics Summer School brings together from a wide variety of disciplines to teach students about the biophotonics field. In 2012, some of the topics covered included principles of biophotonics, technology and methods of investigation. The latest research developments are also covered, including: biomolecular sensing, nanoprobes, nonlinear microscopy, nanoscopy, and nanoplasmonics. The summer school brought together students from across the world and from a multitude of backgrounds.
Mustafa Mir is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is seeking a post-doctoral research position in a highly interdisciplinary environment to design new instrumentation and analysis tools to study fundamental problems in the areas of biophysics and bioengineering. His graduate research has focused on using novel optical and analytical methods to answer pressing biological questions and has had major impact in the areas of blood screening, cell growth measurements, measuring sub-cellular structure and analyzing organization in developing neural cultures. Mustafa has presented his work through a variety of peer-reviewed journals and at various conferences and technical forums and received two departmental awards in recognition of this work. In addition he has mentored several successful students and volunteered his time to serve in several student leadership roles including organizing a successful seminar series. In the future, he hopes to continue and expand on his interdisciplinary research with collaborators in the areas of neuroscience, cell biology, microelectomechanical systems and theoretical biology.
