DUNEDIN, Fla., Feb. 18, 2014 — Ocean Optics has named Gabriel Orsinger the 2014 recipient of the Young Investigator Award.

Orsinger, a graduate student at the University of Arizona, was honored for his research of the use of gold-coated liposomes as a tool for studying cellular behavior as it relates to cancer and other diseases.

The work was completed alongside his advisor, Marek Romanowski, research assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Arizona Cancer Center.

“Ocean Optics embraces a tradition of working closely with researchers across many disciplines, and is inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication of the men and women just starting their careers,” said David Creasey, vice president of sales and marketing for Ocean Optics. “These passionate innovators can harness the power of spectroscopy to protect and improve the quality of life for people worldwide.”

Ocean Optics has sponsored the Young Investigator Award since 2005 and has long supported young scientists from around the world through sponsorships, grant programs and partnerships.

The award is presented annually to a researcher who is a graduate student or has completed their graduate work in the last five years and is the primary author of the best juried paper submitted as part of the Colloidal Quantum Dots for Biomedical Applications IX conference at the BiOS/Photonics West Symposium.

The award winner also receives $1000, and the graduate student’s advisor receives a company grant.
