Jithin Jose

Dr. Jithin Jose obtained a Master of Science degree (Integrated MSc) in photonics from Center of excellence in lasers and optoelectronic science (CELOS), Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), Kerala. India in 2007. 
His specialization was in the field of Biophotonics. From January 2008 to January 2012, he performed research towards his PhD thesis at Biomedical Photonic imaging (BMPI) group, University of Twente, The Netherlands. During his research he developed a Computed tomography (CT) photoacoustic imager to enable molecular imaging of tumors in small animals. He also has an extensive knowledge in the exogenous contrast agents such as gold nanorods used for photoacoustic imaging. During his thesis he collaborated with different groups and investigated the feasibility of translating photoacoustic imaging into clinical practice. He is the co-author of more than 20 refereed journal publications and maintains active research interest in the applications of photoacoustic imaging in pre-clinical and clinical practice. 
Since January 2012, he is working as a Business development manager at FUJIFILM Visualsonics (VSI). He is responsible for the research and development activities in the VSI laboratory in Amsterdam and also coordinates the ongoing scientific projects in collaboration with different European research groups, especially in the translational aspect of the photoacoustic technology.
