Ocean Optics Names Winner of 2013 Young Investigator Award
(Nanowerk News) Ocean Optics (www.OceanOptics.com), the industry leader in miniature photonics, has named Christian F. Gainer of the University of Arizona as winner of the 2013 Ocean Optics Young Investigator Award.
Gainer was honored for his work with his advisor, Marek Romanowski, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Arizona, presented in the paper "Multiphoton imaging of three-dimensional cancer models using upconverting lanthanide nanoparticles." Their work describes the use of multiphoton scanning microscopy for three-dimensional modeling of colon and ovarian cancer.
Ocean Optics has sponsored the Young Investigator Award since 2008, part of a long tradition of supporting young scientists and educators from around the world.
“We are energized and inspired by the efforts and discoveries of researchers early in their careers,” said Michael Allen, Ocean Optics Director, Marketing and Product Development. “Our support for these young men and women underscores our commitment to the vision of changing the world for the better through optical sensing.”
