Part of: 
EOSAM 2014
15 September 2014 - 19 September 2014
Submission Timeframe: 
28 February 2014 - 4 April 2014

The focus of this topical meeting is to explore new trends and applications in the field of Biophotonics and Medical Optics. New developments in optical control of cells, biomarkers, fluidics and lab on a chip devices as well as new approaches to tissue imaging and cell functionality will be discussed.



Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Optical control of cells, optogenetics 
  • Photoporation Biomarkers for optical techniques 
  • Studies of cells and single molecules 
  • Lab-on-a-chip optofluidic devices 
  • Microfluidic biosensors 
  • Fabrication technologies for optofluidics
  • Optical Coherence Tomography technical advances, functional OCT, 
  • catheter development 
  • Optical Coherence Tomography in clinical practice, translational research 
  • Optical Coherence Tomography in ophthalmology
