Nanotechnology is the cutting-edge field of designing, producing, and manipulating materials and devices at the atomic and molecular scale. Biophotonics is a field that uses photons of light to image, identify, and engineer biological materials. Together, nano-biophotonics is an emerging multidisciplinary field that combines the application of nanotechnology, biomedical science, and photonics to guide scientific investigations and engineer innovative solutions to real-world problems.

The Nanobiophotonics & Biomedical Research Lab is established in 2017 and is an integrated part of M.I.S. Electronics Inc. that excels in building partnerships with academic institutions and commercial organizations. Our goal is to perform advanced research while continuing to develop nanotechnology and photonics-based clinical industrial devices to meet the demands of the biomedical industry, as well as act as a specialized consultant.

The Director of the Lab, Professor Mohammad Khosroshahi, has received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics (Application of Lasers in Medicine) from Hull University (UK) in 1993, M.Sc. in Analytical Physics from Swansea University (UK) in 1989, and B.Sc. in Applied Physics and Electronics from Lancaster University (UK) in 1987. He is Fellow Member of Institute of Nanotechnology, Member of Canadian Medical and Biomedical Engineering Society, Canadian Association of Physics, and board member of Institute for Advanced Non-Destructive & Diagnostic Technologies (IANDIT)-University of Toronto. He is author of Application of Nanobiophotonics and Nanobiomaterials in Biomedical Engineering, and co-author of 2 book chapters in the field of Laser Surface Modification of Titanium Alloys for Orthopaedic Applications, and has published over 100 peer reviewed papers in international journals. At M.I.S., Professor Khosroshahi continues to manage research projects related to nanobiotechnology, biomedical devices and welcomes opportunities for discussion and collaboration.
