Tropical School of Biophotonics

The first international Tropical School of Biophotonics will be held in Biopolis, Singapore from 5-9th October 2015, organized by Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC), A*STAR with the support of International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB). This school aims to educate and train ~25 international participants at PhD student and young postdoctoral level in the field of biophotonics and fellowships are available to participants.
Tropical School of Biophotonics will provide an outstanding program including lectures from renowned worldwide experts and hands-on workshop training on current biophotonics techniques while fostering an international atmosphere for the participants to exchange scientific ideas and also seek career guidance within the photonics field.

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.
