Dr. Brian C. Wilson, Ontario Cancer Institute, Canada and Board Member of Biophontinics4Life has been awarded with the Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, today. Brian Wilson is honored with this award for his substained, high-quality contributions to biomedical optics for over 30 years.
The Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of biomedical optics through the development of innovative, high-impact biophotonic technologies. The award particularly honors pioneering contributions to optical methods and devices that have facilitated advancements in biology or medicine. Honorarium of $2,000 presented annually.
Brian Wilson, together with Dennis Matthews, Director of the Center for Biophotonics Science &Technology, and Jürgen Popp, Director of the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology and Coordinator of the European Network Photonics4Life, is board member of the Biophotonics4Life Worldwide Consortium.
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.
