New in the lab in a joint position with Wellman Center of Photomedicine (MGH, Harvard): Dr.Judith Birkenfeld


We welcome back Judith Birkenfeld in VioBio Lab. She is joining through a Marie Curie COFUND Fellowship (Fundacion Madri+d) jointly Wellman Center (Andy Yun’s Lab) and the Institute of Optics, CSIC (VIOBIO Lab) . Judith’s background is in Physics (MSc, Heidelberg University) and Visual Optics and Biophotonics (PhD Universidad Complutense de Madrid), having graduated under the supervision of Prof. Susana Marcos. She joins back after M+Vision Postdoctoral Fellowship work at MIT, Brigham Women Hospital and Mass General Hospital working on translational projects in biomedicine. Her interests are in the area of ocular imaging (OCT and microscopy) and applications to ocular biomechanics.

OCT- based full crystalline lens shape as a function of accommodation in vivo, published in Biomedical Optics Express


A newly developed method to estimate the entire lens shape based on 3-D quantitative imaging is applied to the evaluation of the lens changes in volume, surface area, equatorial position and equatorial lens diameter, in young eyes in vivo. The study is the first assessment of the full accommodating crystalline lens in vivo using high resolution optical imaging.

The work has been published in Biomedical Optics Express as part of a Special Issue on Optical Coherence Tomography Full reference:
