The project "A Low-cost Multi-contrast Multi-functional Optical-resolution Photoacoustic Microscopy for Early Cancer Diagnostic and Screening" received the Gold Medal at Inventions Geneva Evaluation Days (IGED) 2022. IGED is the world's most important annual event devoted exclusively to invention.

This invention is used for early cancer diagnostic and screening, with three main innovations: advanced multi-spectral light source, real-time imaging speed, and effective tumour-specific multi-functional multimorphologic image analysis methods. It can also be used in ultrafast neuronal activity recording, multi-functional hemodynamic imaging in brain-related pathologic analysis, and long-term drug release process monitoring during treatment.
