A one day meeting: University of Dundee, 11th September 2014
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 Innovative Doctoral Programme 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.
