IBIS - Innovative Biomedical Instruments and Systems lab
performs research on nano-instruments and bio-sensors applied to
advanced diagnostics, imaging and treatment. Our research lies on the border
of photonics, nanotechnology, bioimaging and microfluidics.
We take a quantitative approach to technology design, and take projects
all the way from careful design and optimization to
fabrication and application to real word problems.
The head of the IBIS lab is Professor Anna Pyayt who
joined USF after being an NSF CIFellow and Postdoctoral
Fellow at Stanford University. She earned her dual Ph.D.
in Electrical Engineering and Nanotechnology from the
University of Washington. One of her inventions -
Telescopic Pixel (a competitor to LCD) that Dr.
Pyayt created in collaboration with Microsoft Research gained international media attention, was highlighted
in high-profile journals like Nature, and other top
scientific venues. The original publication was translated
into more than 30 languages worldwide. She was also the
first scientist to demonstrate a novel optical interconnect
between a photonic and multiple plasmonic waveguides
enabling fabrication of new Biomedical nano-chips
(published in Nature Nanotechnology).
