Clinical and Translational Biophotonics

Clinical and Translational Biophotonics

25 - 28 April 2016
The Diplomat Resort and Spa, Fort Lauderdale, Florida United States

The Clinical and Translational Biophotonics (CTB) conference will focus on research that has demonstrated human clinical applications, such as bioimaging or biosensing of human tissue specimens, first-to-human investigations of new optical imaging technologies for disease detection, diagnosis, or monitoring, clinical studies, and larger clinical trials.  Biomedical optics and biophotonics research involving pre-clinical animal models or fundamental technology research should be submitted to other conferences at this congress.
