Steve Jacques has worked in the field of photomedicine for over thirty years, focusing on novel optical imaging methods for biomedical research and clinical care. He is currently the primary investigator on a design project to create a colposcope for cervical exams to detect cancer and another to test an optical coherence tomography (OCT) otoscope, that allows doctors to investigate conductive hearing loss without surgical intervention on the tympanic membrane.
Jacques has developed many tools for biomedical research, including the hand-held bilirubin spectrometer, designed to draw blood from the heels of infants without causing pain. He has also worked on developing novel optical measurement techniques and light transport theory for modeling measurement geometries to recover intrinsic tissue optical properties.
