Local Cluster Projects

Apart from its European and international scale, Photonics4Life is as well active on a local basis. Local Cluster Partners of P4L are research institutes located close to and cooperating with a core member, typically in the same city or in the surrounding. Most of the Local Cluster Partners are from the disciplines of biology or medicine. Local Cluster Partners participate in all the existing activities of Photonics4Life like research projects and meetings and have access to the database.

Below you can find different examples of these local partnerships within Photonics4Life and their scientific output.

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.
