The CBST Research Portfolio is organized around three distinct theme areas:
1. Advance Bioimaging and Spectroscopy
2. Molecular and Cellular Biophotonics
3. Medical Biophotonics; Sensors & Assays;
with research themes arranged by Center-Driven or Collaborator-Driven Projects.
In keeping with its mission as an NSF Science and Technology Center, CBST strongly supports a team-based, interdisciplinary and multi-institutional approach to address important challenges in biology and medicine.
