Michael Giacomelli

  • Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
  • Assistant Professor of Optics

PhD, Duke University , 2012

5-8145 Medical Center



Professor Giacomelli arrives from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Research Lab of Electronics where he was a research scientist conducting imaging research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the VA medical center in Boston. He finished his PhD in 2012 in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University where he worked on endoscopic imaging. Professor Giacomelli completed his B.S. in Computer Engineering and in Computer Science at the University of Arizona. 

Research Overview

His research program focuses on the application of multiphoton and fluorescence imaging to surgical pathology and clinical medicine. The Giacomelli Lab designs custom multiphoton and fluorescence microscopes, algorithms, and electronics that enable surgical and clinical imaging of pathology in living human tissue with an emphasis on building instruments that can be directly used by clinicians and non-engineers.
