Takashi Buma, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, was awarded a three-year, $240,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. Funded through the NSF Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Biophotonics program, the project “Wavelength Agile Photoacoustic Microscopy for Video-Rate Functional Imaging” advances his research goals while giving several undergraduates the opportunity to conduct new research. The experience includes the instrumentation and equipment in Buma’s new research laboratory, which is part of the current renovations to the third floor of Butterfield Hall. The renovated space will include the shared resources and faculty collaborations among the Bioengineering and Neuroscience programs.
