Hôtel-Dieu Hospital

Hôtel-Dieu Hospital

The Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Paris near Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the oldest hospitals in the world. It is known notably for its departments of diabetes and endocrine illnesses and ophthalmology. L' Hospital became a center of reference in corneal and refractive surgery for its famous surgeons as well as for its medical equipment and cutting edge technology.
The diabetes and endocrine illnesses clinical department deals almost exclusively with the screening, treatment and prevention of the complications associated with diabetes mellitus. It is also a referral service for hypoglycemia. Oriented towards informing the patient (therapeutic education) and technological innovation, it offers a large choice of care facilities for all levels of complications. It is also at the forefront of research in diabetes in areas such as new insulins and new drugs, effects of nutrition, external and implanted pumps, glucose sensors and artificial pancreas.
L' Hospital became a center of reference in corneal and refractive surgery for its famous surgeons as well as for its medical equipment and cutting edge technology. Located in the very center of Paris, the center attracts the visit of many surgeons from France and abroad wishing to specialize in this domain. Each year the service of ophthalmology in partnership with the University Rene Descartes (Paris V) organizes prestigious workshops of specific teaching within the framework of the university degree of optical microsurgery. The topics always revolve around technological innovation.

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.
