      I do genetic testing on patients with serious brain diseases, often patients with epilepsy and intellectual disability.

      Yes.. in a way. We work with the hospitals to try to develop techniques based on light to try to detect diseases at the earliest stages.

      We work with breast cancer samples (so cancer is the condition), trying to figure out why the cells have become cancer and what is wrong with them.
