Biophotonics

Head of Research: Daniel Côté

This sector is experiencing strong growth and has become one of the most rapidly developing axes at our research centre. The main activities underway target imaging, diagnostics, the development of analytical tools and therapeutics. Work in this sector is supported by various partnerships with hospital-based research centers, in particular the Quebec University Institute of Mental Health, the organization that collaborated with the COPL in obtaining a second Canada Excellence Research Chair, this one in neurophotonics. The Chairholder is Dr. Pierre Marquet who joined the COPL in 2015.
