A revolutionary imaging technology for visualizing bacteria developed by MBP researcher Dr. Ralph DaCosta has been prominently featured in a recent e-paper published by the National Post. The article outlines the development of the MolecuLight, a device based on Dr. DaCosta's biomedical imaging research. This technology enables physicians to see bacteria on the skin in real-time, assisting doctors in treating infected wounds.

The article cites Dr. DaCosta’s MolecuLight as one example of how Canada is fast becoming a ‘hot-bed’ of healthcare technology.
