Journal of Biomedical Photonics & Engineering

Online Journal of Biomedical Photonics & Engineering (JBPE) covers fundamental research and applications focused on the interactions between light and biological materials and biomedical signal processing. The objectives of JBPE are to establish an effective channel of communication between researchers, practitioners and clinicians, government agencies, universities, academic and research institutions and persons working in the area of biomedical photonics and engineering. Our focus encompasses the application of the basic principles of photonics and engineering to the development of medical devices and technologies, advancements in the early detection, diagnostics, and therapy of disease and with the ultimate aim of producing improvements in the quality of health care.

This special issue is planned as a dedication to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Prof. Alexander V. Priezzhev and honor his contribution to the field of biophotonics. The issue will feature a collection of selected papers closely related to scientific interests of Prof. Priezzhev and presenting state-of-the–art research in the field. Contributions of colleagues, collaborators and students of Prof. Priezzhev are especially welcome.

Alexander V. Priezzhev was born on April, 3, 1947. He graduated and received his PhD degree from the Department of Physics, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (Moscow, Russia) in 1971 and 1975, respectively. Currently he is head of Laboratory of Laser Biomedical Photonics at Moscow State University. As a principal investigator or research fellow he was involved in numerous national and international research projects in the area of medical physics and biomedical optics; he co-authored more than 300 peer-reviewed papers, books and conference proceedings. Alexander V. Priezzhev has been awarded by the Ministry of Healthcare of Russian Federation for long lasting activities in development of novel optical techniques for medical applications and by the Ministry of Science and Education of Russian Federation for achievements in research and education activities. His areas of expertise cover biophysics, biophotonics, biomedical optics, laser medicine, medical physics, physics of biological fluids, nanobiophotonics, and optical and laser measurement techniques.

Special Issue on Optical Imaging in Biomedicine

General Scope:

Generally, optical imaging modalities may be characterized with utilizing of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light techniques in imaging. Optical imaging is noninvasive and eliminates accumulated harmful radiation to the body. This technique is highly desirable because it is a function approach to observe biological and pathological processes. On the other hand, optical imaging can supply diagnostic information to guide therapeutic procedures. Recently, optical imaging has drawn tremendous intention because of high contrast, high resolution, and low-cost characteristics that would impact preclinical and, eventually, clinical studies. In the past few years, many exciting research results have demonstrated great progress in this field such as technical instrumentation, optical contrast agents, imaging strategies, and new applications. This special issue invites you to submit contributed research papers on emerging optical imaging and their biomedical applications. 

Specific areas of interest in the topic include (but not limited to):

  • Fluorescence imaging
  • Photoacoustic or optoacoustic tomography
  • Raman imaging
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Diffusive optical tomography
  • Near field imaging
  • Exogenous contrast agents
  • Applications in life sciences and medicine
