Theodore Kennedy Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering (2011 - 2016)
Professor Wax has earned a national reputation as one of the best scholars in his discipline and the field of biomedical optics. His research involves the use of light to characterize cells and tissues, which helps detect disease. Professor Wax is also committed to undergraduate education. He has taught five different BME courses, playing key roles in the development of new lectures and laboratory materials. Perhaps his most important curricular contribution is a set of biophotonics courses, taken by undergraduate and graduate students.
