Biophotonics on the River

The Second International Symposium on Topical Problems of Biophotonics will take place from 19 to 24 July on the route from Nizhny Novgorod to Samara and back. While being swayed on Europe’s biggest stream, scientists from 22 countries will present their findings and exchange their ideas in the four subconferences: “Optical Bioimaging”, “Nanobiophotonics”, “Neuroimaging and Neurodynamics” and “Terahertz Diagnostics and Treatment”. The symposium will also feature a workshop in advanced laser applications.

Several scientists from Photonics4Life will actively contribute to the program. Among them are Tom Brown (USTAN) and Jürgen Popp (IPHT) as Program Chairs and Timo Mappes (FZK) and Stefan Andersson-Engels (ULund) as invited speakers, giving two of a total of 143 talks. A sponsor session and a master class for young researchers complete the program.

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.
