Physics and Disease

In my presentation, I will summarize our recent work on the physics of disease. I will start with a gentle introduction to biophysics of disease. This will be followed by photoacoustic and acoustic microscopy, development of nanosecond fiber lasers for imaging, optical tweezers for detection of sound, physical modeling of angiogenesis, tumor growth and drug delivery, proton therapy, and last of all, a short discussion of machine learning.
