Berezin Lab research interest lies in the investigation and application of optical imaging and optical spectroscopy to understand complex biomedical problems, such as peripheral neuropathies, nerve regenerations, and chronic pain. For our studies, we combine a variety of methods, including molecular, imaging,  electrophysiological,  and behavioral techniques in live animals. In addition, we develop imaging and hyperspectral modalities in a relatively unexplored shortwave infrared spectral range and develop imaging algorithms to process hyperspectral data.
