Dr. Haishan Zeng is a distinguished scientist with the Integrative Oncology Department (Imaging Unit) of the BC Cancer Agency Research Centre, a professor of Dermatology and Skin Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC), and associate member of UBC Departments of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and Physics & Astronomy. For over 28 years, Dr. Zeng’s research has been focused on developing various optical imaging and spectroscopy techniques for improving early cancer detection. He has published over 151 refereed journal papers, 1 book, 17 book chapters, and has 25 granted patents related to optical diagnosis and therapy. Several medical devices derived from these patents have passed regulatory approvals and are currently in clinical uses around the world. The latest device, Verisante Aura™ using Raman spectroscopy for non-invasive skin cancer detection, was awarded the Prism Award in the Life Sciences and Biophotonics category in February, 2013 by SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics.
