Tarl has established programs for developing novel computational, nanotechnologies and microtechnologies for detecting and treating skin cancer. His research program bridges strengths in microdevices, nanomedicine and non-invasive imaging for applications in the fields of skin cancer prevention, preventing photoageing, and early skin cancer diagnosis. Within this framework his laboratory has active projects in:
(1) enhanced cutaneous delivery technologies for antioxidants and chemotherapeutic drugs to fight photoageing and skin cancer;
(2) objective photodamage and skin cancer precursor detection/assessment tools using non-invasive microscopy coupled with artificial intelligence; and
