Optical Molecular Probes, Imaging and Drug Delivery

Optical Molecular Probes, Imaging and Drug Delivery

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

OMP addresses the exciting and timely convergence of optical physics, photonics technology, nanoscience and photochemistry with drug delivery, non-invasive diagnostics and clinical medicine.

This multidisciplinary topical meeting will highlight recent advances in this rapidly evolving area with a goal of stimulating new ideas toward novel strategies for molecular probe development, site-specific drug delivery, monitoring treatment response, and clinical translation to improve diagnosis or treatment of diseases. Areas to be covered include, but are not limited to, novel molecular probe design, applications of smart molecular probes in basic and applied research, endogenous and exogenous optical molecular biomarkers, multimodal imaging, advances in instrumentation and algorithms for optical molecular imaging, molecular and functional imaging of normal and diseased tissue, image-guided drug delivery, drug screening and monitoring therapeutic response. Broad participation by experts, postdoctoral fellows and students is encouraged
