Overview

 

Organised by Professor Clare Elwell, Professor Jeremy Hebden, Professor Paul Beard, Professor Elizabeth Hillman and Professor Chris Cooper

The purpose of this meeting is to exploit the recent surge of interest in the development of new diagnostic optical technologies to explore their future transition from benchtop prototypes to routine use in the clinical and life sciences. It will bring together a highly interdisciplinary group of scientists working towards a new generation of monitoring and imaging techniques.
