Photonic technologies play an important role in many different aspects of healthcare, from imaging and therapy through to diagnostics, in surgery and point of care instrumentation. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the community of companies and other stakeholders who are active in this field in order to promote collaboration and new translational research projects.
Who should attend?
Companies already active in the broad area of Healthcare Photonics or who are interested in entering this market. Research active medical professionals and clinical experts in technology translation and commercialisation. Academics involved in the translation and application of photonics-based technologies to healthcare applications.
Why you should attend
Participants will get information about clinical needs which could be addressed using photonics and about some of the latest available photonic technologies.
