Profile Summary

Dr. Babak Shadgan is an SPIE Fellow member. He is a medical doctor specialized in Sports Medicine and Clinical Biophotonics. Dr. Shadgan is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Orthopaedics, the University of British Columbia with an Associate Faculty appointment at the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering. He received his MD degree in 1994, an MSc in sports medicine from the University of London in 2001 and a Ph.D. in clinical biophotonics from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2011. He also completed a fellowship on NIRS-Diffused Optical Tomography at Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging of MIT/Harvard University. His postdoctoral fellowship at ICORD (the International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries) was focused on remote optical monitoring of bladder dysfunction in people with spinal cord injury. With more than two decades of medical practice and research Babak has developed a specific knowledge in clinical biophotonics with a unique bedside-to-bench approach. His current research focuses on advancing novel implantable and wearable methods for real-time monitoring of internal organ and tissue hemodynamics, metabolism, and function in health and diseases. As an Olympic sports physician and medical director, Babak is actively working on sports and exercise applications of Biophotonics. He is currently involved in developing optical diagnostics and monitoring interventions in Sports Medicine and Exercise Sciences. Dr. Shadgan chairs "Biophotonics in Exercise Science, Sports Medicine, Health Monitoring Technologies, and Wearables" BIOS Conference and teaches “Fundamentals of Applied Pathophysiology in Biomedical Engineering” at SPIE.
