Bio and CV
Email
Dr. Intes's research focuses on application of optical techniques for biomedical imaging in pre-clinical and clinical settings. His research concentration is on functional imaging of the breast and brain, fusion with other modalities, and fluorescence molecular imaging. At Rensselaer, Dr. Intes will continue to pursue the development of original optical imaging systems and new imaging algorithms, along with the application of these methods to optical molecular imaging problems.
