Adam Wax's Biography

Adam Wax, Theodore Kennedy Professor, Duke University

Adam Wax received dual B.S. degrees in 1993, one in electrical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY and one in physics from the State University of New York at Albany, and the Ph.D. degree in physics from Duke University, Durham, NC in 1999. He joined the George R. Harrison Spectroscopy Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as a postdoctoral fellow of the National Institutes of Health immediately after his doctorate. Dr. Wax joined the faculty of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University in the fall of 2002. In 2006, Dr. Wax founded Oncoscope, Inc. to commercialize early cancer detection technology developed in his laboratory. In 2010, he was named as Fellow of the Optical Society of America and SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. He is currently the Theodore Kennedy professor of biomedical engineering at Duke University and Chairman of Oncoscope, Inc. His research interests are in the use of light scattering and interferometry to probe the biophysical properties of cells for both diagnosis of disease and fundamental cell biology studies.

Current blood cell analysis techniques require manual examination by expert technicians, resulting in a costly and time-consuming test. Our group has been developing new methods for automated screening of blood cell imaging using a compact, portable, inexpensive, and easy-to-use wide field digital holographic  microscope. This instrument will permit more cost effective diagnosis of pathological conditions by avoiding the need for the time of a trained microscopist. In our unique microscope design, optical fidelity and alignment are achieved through the use of our interferometric sample chamber (InCh), which produces holographic images of cell samples with simple laser illumination.
