Welcome to the Bio-Engineering Advanced Medical Solutions (BEAMS) Laboratory at UCI.
. . . . .
The BEAMS Lab was established by Dr. Elliot Botvinick in 2007. It is part of the University of California, Irvine’s Departments of Surgery and Biomedical Engineering. The BEAMS group has laboratories at the Beckman Laser Institute and Clinic, the Convergence Optical Science Initiative (COSI) in Applied Innovation, and in the Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology. We focus on mechanobiology and medical device development — both using biophotonic theory and technology for sensing the physical environment within engineered systems, diabetes management, and interstitial analyte sensing for the detection and treatment of disease.
