Laserlab Foresight Workshop Lasers for Life

Since its invention over 50 years ago, the laser has found applications across many areas of science and medicine, ranging from fundamental research using spectroscopy and imaging techniques to clinical applications for diagnosis and treatment. This foresight workshop will bring together leading experts to explore the current state of the art of laser-based biomedical science, and to map out the prospects for future applications and developments in the area.

The workshop will be open to biomedical scientists from Laserlab-Europe and other European institutions. In the case that demand for places exceeds the meeting capacity, non-Laserlab participants will be selected to cover a range of science areas as wide as possible. We hope the meeting will be attended by researchers at all career levels, ranging from doctoral students and early-career researchers to senior scientists.

Round Robin Experiment

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.
