Photonics4Life Interdisciplinary School on Clinical Biophotonics

The P4L Interdisciplinary School on Clinical Biophotonics offers a new approach towards interdisciplinary
learning in Biophotonics. To foster education and communication across disciplines one half of the lecturers and presumably the attending students at the school will have a medical and the other half a technological background
in Biophotonics. Most of the lecturers are working together in research projects and form speaker tandems at the school to shed light on their topics from both angles.

Medical Topics:

  • Gastroenterology (Prof. Dr. Andreas Stallmach)
  • Otolaryngology (Prof. Dr. Orlando Guntinas-Lichius)
  • Oncology (Prof. Dr. Katarina Svanberg)
  • Infectious Diseases (Prof. Dr. Michael Bauer)

Technical Topics:

  • Second Harmonic Generation (Prof. Dr. Francesco Pavone)
  • Raman Microscopy (Prof. Dr. J├╝rgen Popp)
  • Fluorescence Imaging (Prof. Dr. Mark Neill)
  • Biochip Systems (Prof. Dr. Francesco Baldini)

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.

5th International Conference on Biophotonics

20 March 2017

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. [more]
