Congratulations to Yu and Frank!

The Structure Function Imaging Lab is happy to congratulate our first doctoral degree recipient, Yu Gan! We also celebrate Frank Yao’s graduation. Yu and Frank worked together to describe the ultrastructure of human cervical tissue with optical coherence tomography. This work will pave the way for the understanding of pre-term birth. Congratulations Yu and Frank!
