Training Schools

Photonics4Life is targeting at profound training of young European PhD researchers in biophotonics by specialized training-schools in order to reach an effective, sustainable education for the future of biophotonics. Training schools on the one hand are held in cooperation with other biophotonics institutions throughout Europe, and on the other hand are specialized stand-alone P4L schools.

Current P4L training schools

Summerschool on Clinical Biophotonics

06 May 2012 - 10 May 2012 (Castle Schkopau, Germany)

Further training schools recommended by P4L

Photonica 2011

29 August 2011 - 2 September 2011 (Belgrade, Serbia)

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.
