Saratov State University


Saratov State University (SSU) is one of the largest educational, scientific and cultural centers in Russia with 28 individual departments and substantial research laboratory facilities supporting research in biophysics, medical physics, biochemical physics, biomedical optics, biology, chemistry, nanotechnologies, computer science, nonlinear processes, and materials science & bioengineering. The University campus is shared with Saratov State Medical University, it is affiliated with the specialized clinics and hosts clinical research and investigation. These research facilities are available for research groups from SSU because of a long-term collaborative agreement between two parties. Photonics and Biophotonics research and developments as well as educational programs are concentrated in two major SSU divisions: Chair of Optics and Biomedical Physics (COBP) and Research-Educational Institute of Optics and Biophotonics (REIOB). Around 60 research and faculty members of these two divisions are involved in photonics and Biophotonics studies and education, including 10 full professor and 30 PhD and MD. Two student Chapters of SPIE and OSA are well functioning on the basis of COBP and REIOB.

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.
