Nov 20, 2017   |   Photonics Online

"Dr. Brian Pogue of Dartmouth will take the helm as editor-in-chief of SPIE’s Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) starting Jan. 1, 2018," writes Photonics Online. "The JBO publishes papers on the use of modern optical technology for improved health care and biomedical research; it is part of the SPIE Digital Library.

"Pogue succeeds Lihong Wang of the California Institute of Technology, and brings to the position a wealth of expertise in optical imaging technologies. Per SPIE, he 'has published more than 300 peer-reviewed papers and 400 conference proceedings, related to fundamental discoveries in cancer imaging, photodynamic therapy, molecular-guided surgery, near infrared tomography and spectroscopy, medical oncology, and radiation therapy imaging.'

"Further, Pogue has been an editorial board member for the Journal of Biomedical Optics since 2007. He has stated that he 'aims to highlight advances at the intersection of emerging optical/photonic technologies and biomedical needs.'

"Dr. Pogue graciously took time recently to speak with Photonics Online about his decision to join Journal of Biomedical Optics as editor-in-chief, his vision for the journal, and how he balances all of his interests in limited time."
