Knowledge management is one of the core activities of Photonics4Life especially due to the strong interdependence of the different subdisciplines of Biophotonics. The objectives of the knowledge management centre are to enable, facilitate and stimulate information sharing, networking and e-collaboration between the Photonics4Life partners, to integrate and disseminate the knowledge and expertise on Biophotonics gathered and created by Photonics4Life and to reflect and demonstrate the collaboration and the integration of Photonics4Life as a network.
Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
Continuing the success of the previous meetings held in Sacramento, Ottawa, Jena, and Florence, the 5th conference will come to Perth, Western Australia, running over two full days, and back-to-back with the Science on the Swan medical research conference, which delegates are strongly encouraged to also attend, at discounted rates.
