Tropical School on Advances in Biophotonics for Biomedicine, Singapore, October 5-9, 2015

This 5 day Tropical school aims to cover basics of photonics and various cutting edge photonics and nano-photonics techniques for preclinical bio-imaging and bio-sensing. Basic theory and instrumentation of techniques such as microscopy, fluorescence, optical coherence tomography, photo acoustic imaging (PAI), Raman and Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), Surface plasmon resonance (SPR), Near infra-red spectroscopy (NIRS), diffuse optical tomography (DOT) and hyperspectral imaging will be discussed in detail. Subsequently, intense hands on training sessions on bio-imaging and bio-sensing using Raman/SERS, PAI, fluorescence, SPR and NIRS/DOT will be provided. This training is intended to cover multimodal photonics techniques for various bio-imaging applications. In addition, a 1 day long intensive training session on all the state of the art NIKON microscopic systems will also be provided.
