Bio-Optics: Design and Application (BODA)

14 - 18 April 2013
Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii, USA

Invited Speakers

Elizabeth Hillman, Columbia Univ., USA, Optical Neuroimaging, PLENARY
Abstract: From 3D microscopy of cellular structures, to measurements of neuronal dynamics and blood flow, optical methods permit diverse investigations of the living brain. The latest photoactivation and optical neuroimaging approaches and applications will be reviewed.


Duco Jansen, Vanderbilt Univ., USA, Photonic Neural Interfaces: Current State and Future Challenges, PLENARY
Abstract: I will present an overview of the concepts and applications of optical nerve stimulation and inhibition with a focus on characterization of this technique, mechanistic studies as well as on several applications and device development.

Sunney Xie, Harvard Univ., USA, Label-Free Vibrational Imaging for Medicine, PLENARY
Abstract: Stimulated Raman scattering microscopy is a label-free and noninvasive imaging technique using vibrational spectroscopy as the contrast. Recent advances have allowed significant improvements in sensitivity, selectivity, robustness, and cost; opening a wide range of biomedical applications.
