The mission of the Biothermal Technology Laboratory (BTTL) is to promote research and education in the general field of thermal energy in biology and medicine with emphases on:

 

       Cryopreservation – the preservation of biological material at very low temperatures

       Cryosurgery – the destruction of cancerous tumors by freezing

       Hyperthermia – the localized treatment of tissues by elevated temperatures

       Interstitial photodynamic therapy (I-PDT)—the treatment of cancer tumors by light-activated drugs

 

Activity at the BTTL integrates the development of sensors, instrumentation, surgical devices, measurement techniques, physical modeling, numerical techniques, computation tools, and thermal design.
