Jannick Rolland, LighTopTech, and the Breakthrough Biomedical Device Giving the Bump-Off to Biopsies

Jannick Rolland is a Professor in Optical Engineering at the Institute of Optics, University of Rochester and the CEO of LighTopTech Corp. She is the recipient of the 2014 OSA David Richardson Medal recognizing her visionary contributions and leadership in optical design and engineering, enabling noninvasive, optical biopsy.

“Being a scientist is equivalent to engaging in a life style where we constantly think how we may contribute in tangible ways to make the world ever better,” says Rolland.

LighTopTech Corp. has developed an hand-held imaging probe that uses near infralight and a bio-inspired liquid lens to capture micrometer-class resolution in three dimensions within composite material and organic tissues. Moving into the future, a doctor using the device will be able to tell if a mole is cancerous simply by pressing it against the suspicious tissue.
