Dr. Guillermo Aguilar, a renowned expert in his field, spearheads this dynamic research center with a mission to address some of the most pressing challenges facing modern society. The Agui-Lab’s primary focus areas include laser-based medical treatments, precision manufacturing techniques, and novel materials development. Within the Agui-Lab’s walls, a diverse team of researchers, engineers, and students collaborate tirelessly to push the boundaries of knowledge and innovation. They develop cutting-edge laser technologies for non-invasive medical procedures, explore novel materials with groundbreaking properties, and pioneer new approaches to advanced manufacturing, all under Dr. Aguilar’s expert guidance.
Current ongoing projects include:
- Laser tissue rewarming – developing methods for uniform laser and nanoparticle rewarming of cryopreserved specimens (cells, tissues, organisms)
- Surface erosion mitigation – studying methods to mitigate surface erosion due to cavitation using multiscale surface modification techniques
- Transparent “Window to the Brain” implants – development of transparent cranial implants for imaging and optical theranostics using transparent biocompatible materials
- Non-invasive perfusion monitoring – development and optimization of laser speckle imaging devices to monitor blood perfusion
The Agui-Lab is actively recruiting new Masters and Ph.D. students with interest and experience in these areas. Please Contact Us for more information.
