About HPL

Welcome to the Human Photonics Laboratory (HPL) at the University of Washington located in Seattle. Our goal is to advance the frontier of optical technology in the areas of human performance, cancer detection, and treatment. The HPL has historical ties with the Human Interface Technology Lab at the University of Washington where the ideas for theĀ immersive VR pain distraction, scanning fiber endoscope, and the optical projection tomographic microscope originated. The HPL is comprised of several labs within Fluke Hall located on the University of Washington Seattle campus.


The HPL is located on the University of Washinton main campus in the Fluke Building, floor 2. Click the map below for an interactive map of the lab’s location.
