Nicholas Durr is an M+Vision Fellow at MIT, where he develops novel optical technologies to fulfill unmet clinical needs. He is the principle investigator of two projects:

  1. Advanced Endoscopy Systems: Using concepts from computer vision and biomedical optics, we are creating novel endoscope technologies for improving adenoma detection rates in screening colonoscopy. We have developed a technique, called Photometric Stereo Endoscopy (PSE), to rapidly acquire the 3D topography of a wide field of view. PSE has the potential to increase lesion contrast, as well as improve computer aided detection algorithms for automatic lesion detection. read more...

  2. Eyeglass Prescriptions at the Push of a Button: We are developing a low-cost, portable device called the QuickSee for automated measurement of refractive errors. The QuickSee is designed for use in low-resource settings, like India and China, where glasses are affordable but there is a shortage of optometrists to provide prescriptions. read more...
