Olga Bibikova, University of Oulu/Finland was awarded with the Biophotonics Award for Best Poster Contribution. Olga received the award for her poster entitled "Gold nanostructures for optical coherence tomography imaging of blood flow".
The prize was awarded within the subconference "Biophotonics: Photonic Solutions for Better Health Care" within Photonics Europe. Along with the prize Bibikova received a book token for 250 Euro, which is sponsored by Wiley-VCH Publisher.
"The award was given to the prize-winners due to their outstanding contributions on the biophotonics research focus", stated Jürgen Popp, chair of the subconference and director of the Leibniz Institute of Photonics Technology. "The prize is designed to acknowledge next generation’s researcher work".
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.
