The VHIS approach can lead to sophisticated, low-cost medical instruments for identifying cancerous tissue at an early age.

His co-investigator on the project is professor Jennifer Barton of the UA department of biomedical engineering and BIO5 Institute.

The technology is now available for licensing through Tech Launch Arizona.
