The Center for Biophotonics Sensors and Systems (CBSS) is an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) at Boston University and UC Davis, funded by NSF and by industry membership fees.
The Center's projects focus on early-stage research that use photonics as enabling technologies for advances in methods to detect, sense, identify and understand biological properties, conditions or changes at the molecular and cellular/sub-cellular level. This research is expected to lead to significant commercial benefits in areas such as: disease diagnostics, drug efficacy testing, patient drug effectiveness monitoring, and food & water safety.
The CBSS Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) Meeting on December 5th, 2016 is the Center's mid-year meeting, where existing projects are reviewed and new projects & opportunities are explored. Current CBSS industry members, faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows from UC Davis and Boston University, as well as guest companies* are invited to attend.
*The CBSS Industrial Advisory Board Meeting is by invitation only. Companies interested to attend the meeting as guests (i.e. companies that are not members of CBSS) should contact Tom Dudley (firstname.lastname@example.org, 617-358-4924) or Gabriela Lee (email@example.com, 916-734-1775) for invitations.
