We are pleased to announce a one-day meeting in the area of Biophotonics. The meeting will cover all aspects of the topic, from the development of new optical sources to the development and application of new microscopy techniques. We are also looking for papers in related areas in biophysics, such as scanning probe microscopy.
Our meeting is in part to mark the launch of our PHOQUS Marie Curie Initial Training Network in the area of biophotonics, and we hope that the meeting will be especially suitable for PhD students working in this area, as well as other interested researchers from physics, engineering and life sciences backgrounds.
Confirmed Invited Speakers:
Prof Martin Booth, University of Oxford: Adaptive optics from microscopy to nanoscopy
Prof. Paola Borri, Cardiff University: CARS hyperspectral imaging of cells: Label-free quantitative chemical analysis
Prof. Jamie Hobbs, University of Sheffield: Using and developing atomic force microscopy to unravel biological systems
Dr Chris Leburn, Chromacity
Prof. Gail McConnell, University of Strathclyde: Mesoscopic biomedical imaging using a new giant lens
Mr Ghulam Nabi, Ninewells Hospital and University of Dundee
Dr Jonny Taylor, University of Glasgow
Call for Papers
We are currently looking for contributed papers, in both oral and poster form. To be considered, please send a short, 50- to 100-word abstract to Dr David McGloin (firstname.lastname@example.org), indicating your preference for an oral or poster presentation. Deadline: 31 August. Topics can be in any area related to biophotonics, either technique development or application areas. PhD student presenters are especially welcome.
