Center for Biophotonics (Image 2) James Boggan, a neurosurgeon and co-director of the Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology (CBST), performs a neurosurgical procedure using a biophotonics probe. Biophotonics is the science of generating and harnessing light (photons) to image, detect and manipulate biological materials. Biophotonics are used in many scientific disciplines, for example, in biology to probe for molecular mechanisms, function and structure; and in medicine to study tissue and blood at the macro (large scale) and micro (very small scale) organism levels in order to detect, diagnose and treat diseases in a way that is noninvasive to the body. This research was conducted at CBST, a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center. CBST is managed by the University of California, Davis, under Cooperative Agreement number PHY 01-20999. To learn more about the center, visit their Web site at http://cbst.ucdavis.edu.
