OSA Biophotonics Congress: Optics in the Life Sciences

OSA Biophotonics Congress: Optics in the Life Sciences

02 - 05 April 2017
Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, San Diego, California United States

Significant advances in the development of optical techniques have led to an ever increasing role of optics in the study of and treatment of various problems in the life sciences ranging from molecular level investigations to clinical treatment of patients. In this Congress, the latest advances in molecular probe development, life science imaging, novel and more powerful optical instrumentation and its application to study fundamental biological processes and clinical investigations will be presented. This progress in instrumentation development and its rapid application represents important enablers that permit studies not possible a few years ago. The upcoming group of meetings is a forum designed to report on this progress and brings together leaders in the field whose contributions are significantly advancing the state of the art in biological and medical research through the use of optical technologies.
