EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Bio-Imaging
Online Event

Bio-Imaging and Biophotonics is a highly interdisciplinary field that exploits the light interaction with biological organisms, tissues, cells and molecules. Those technologies are critical to understand more in detail the behavior of different living beings and for the development of new and innovative devices for healthcare and life sciences applications . The new techniques require further developments on the equipment used and on their internal components (light sources, sensors, optics…), to achieve accurate results faster, with higher resolution and/or to analyze smaller features. This meeting will discuss the state-of-the at those technologies and address the upcoming demands from their users.
