Interested in historical forensic spectroscopy?  (thought so!) check out this evaluation I recently did on a letter from the Civil War with a mysterious stain on it.  It was (very geeky and) a lot of fun.     Blood Spectroscopy

We will be live in concert: Friday, Oct. 7th, NYC

"Dr. Gareau, your works on confocal microscopy were the starting point for my Ph.D. programme."  ~Maria Contaldo, Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli
Dr. Dan Gareau received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering with a minor in physics from the University of Vermont in 1999. During his work-study program he designed and built an opto-mechanical myofibril force transducer. During graduate studies, he received his M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology, the very first Ph.D. degree awarded in biomedical engineering from the Oregon Health and Science University, with a focus in Biomedical Optics. In 2005 he joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as a postdoctoral research fellow researching line-scanning and multimodal confocal microscopy. Dr. Gareau has been published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics, the British Journal of Dermatology, the  Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the Journal of Surgical Research, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine and the Journal of Microscopy, and currently serves as Instructor in Clinical Investigation at The Rockefeller University.
