Stephen Boppart - Beckman Institute Bioimaging Science and Technology Group
As a medical doctor and professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Bioengineering, and Medicine at Illinois, Stephen Boppart works at the very heart of technology development for medical applications. Boppart is director of the Biophotonics Imaging Laboratory at Beckman, where he has developed novel methods and technologies for biological imaging. An important part of his research has been the development of non-invasive or minimally invasive methods for generating high-resolution, real-time images of biological tissue at the cellular and molecular level for disease diagnosis at earlier stages and in greater detail than current methods. A focus for Boppart is diagnosis of breast cancer through the use of an imaging technique called optical coherence tomography (OCT) that provides micron-scale images of subsurface biological tissue. In the OCT-based system Boppart's lab developed, a beam of near-infrared light is focused on the tissue and the resulting reflections are measured by their intensity and position to provide a high-resolution image in real time. While the possible applications of this technology are many, the potential of using the OCT system for what are called "optical biopsies" for breast cancer is a major thrust of Boppart's research and technology development efforts. Boppart is currently using the OCT system at Carle Hospital's Mills Breast Cancer Institute in Urbana. In this video, Boppart talks about the advantages the OCT-based system offers over other methods, the results of clinical trials and reactions to the system, as well as future goals for this exciting new technology.

Carle Health System: Contributing in a new way
When you walk into Carle Cancer Center during the noon hour on Wednesdays, you’ll hear something you might not expect to hear – live piano music. You also might not expect that one performer is a relatively new Cancer Center employee performing there for the first time. That was the case in February when Cassaundra Helfrich volunteered to play in a pinch, finding another way to use her talents to help our patients.

Speaking Up: The Patient Push for Accelerating Progress in Cancer Research
Leslie Hammersmith Young Survival Coalition Champaign-Urbana Thursday morning session: Clinical Connections from Bench to Bedside, Beckman Institute, 3:00 PM--3:30 PM Abstract: Medical research empowers us to fight cancer, and advocacy empowers us to ensure that it addresses the needs of people affected by cancer. Advocacy helps us get through our cancer experiences, stand up for all people affected by cancer and gain a feeling of control over our own healthcare. Young Survival Coalition has staked out a powerful role as the voice for young women affected by breast cancer. Our Champaign-Urbana affiliate supports young women in Central Illinois through their breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and we actively work to become educated cancer research advocates so that we can help all young women and end cancer for all people. We work to raise awareness and make improvements on issues of unique importance to young women. Survivors have been instrumental in shaping cancer research studies by helping to define which questions researchers need to address in order to improve the standard of care and quality of life issues most important to us. Educated advocates provide a necessary perspective, making sure researchers think about how their work helps us. This talk discusses the connections between cancer survivorship, cancer research and accelerating our progress towards ending cancer. Speaker bio: Leslie Hammersmith is the eLearning Analyst in the Office of the Chief Information Officer at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She has over 14 years of experience in higher education and faculty development in educational technologies. Leslie is trained in Cancer Research Advocacy and is a Patient Advocate with Carle Cancer Center, where she reviews cancer research protocols. In 2009 Leslie was one of the founders of the Champaign-Urbana Affiliate of Young Survival Coalition, the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Under her leadership, YSC C-U has grown to a recognized community organization to support young women facing breast cancer in Central Illinois. Leslie has participated in programs from Reasearch Advocacy Network and AACR Scientist Survivor Program, and continues to pursue professional development in advocacy.

Using Light to Diagnose Disease
Professor Stephen Boppart uses light to diagnose diseases such as cancer. Called "biophotonics," the technique generates high-resolution, real-time, non-invasive images of biological tissue at the cellular and molecular level. Boppart is a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Bioengineering. He heads the Biophotonics Imaging Laboratory at the Beckman Institute and is a full-time faculty member in the Bioimaging Science and Technology group.

Living With Cancer in Central Illinois: Diagnoses & Decisions
As new bio-technology and research make more and more information available to patients with cancer, they and their families often confront new and challenging decisions. Some risk factors for cancer can be inherited. Many have been linked to gene mutations. In some cases, people choose not to know if they carry any of the genes. Others choose to learn they carry a marker for cancer and must make the difficult decision of how to respond. Some increase screening, others undergo preventive surgery while they're healthy. In "Living With Cancer In Central Illinois: Diagnoses & Decisions," We will hear from doctors, families and cancer survivors who've faced these decisions for their patients, themselves or their loved ones. Amanda Vinicky moderates a discussion with Rohit Bhargava, University of Illinois Professor of Bioengineering and Beckman Institute Faculty Member, Barbara Bello, RN, an oncology nurse with Presence Health, and Dr. Jo-mel Labayog, an Oncologist at Presence United Samaritans Cancer Center. "Living With Cancer in Central Illinois: Diagnoses & Decisions" premiered on WILL-TV on Thursday, April 2 at 9:00pm.

Michelle Tells Us Why She Chose UI Health - University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System
Facilities Manager, Michelle says, "Doctors focus on what's inside you. I want to change what's happening around you. Inspiration can come from a number of places. For me, inspiration came from unfortunate circumstances, the passing of my mother. Having the final memories of my mom cast aglow in neon light and sterile, impersonal waiting rooms, I decided to set out to change the healing environment. I want to make recovery warm and to make family moments, private to the family. That's how I'm changing medicine. For good."
