Clinical and Translational Biophotonics

 
03 April 2020

The health and safety of OSA Meetings attendees is always of primary importance, and especially so in our current environment. Due to travel restrictions resulting from COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the OSA Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics will not be held as originally scheduled.

OSA is currently working with volunteer organizers for this meeting on a solution that benefits speakers, attendees and exhibitors while ensuring the well-being of all participants. This approach does require time, and we appreciate your patience in waiting for an announcement on future plans.

 

This topical meeting focuses on the development and application of optical techniques for clinical applications. The meeting spans clinical diagnostic, surgical guidance and therapeutic approaches that use light, with applications ranging from cancer to ophthalmology and global health.

The meeting spans clinical diagnostic, surgical guidance and therapeutic approaches that use light, with applications ranging from cancer to ophthalmology and global health. It will also include technologies for in-vivo laboratory disease research including contrast agent development and intravital microscopy in animal models.

Presented work will include reports of novel and developing technologies for clinical applications, demonstrations of clinical applications and clinical trial results, with presenters encouraged to share their experiences relating to the challenges of clinical translation. Events will include panel discussions and networking forums to develop skills and expertise for clinical translation, FDA and regulatory hurdles and fundraising.
