Taskforce on Biomedical Spectroscopy

Last modified: June 21, 2013

MISSION STATEMENT

This Task Force will be established to enhance communication between specialists in biophysical spectroscopy and imaging and those wishing to apply such methods to medical research.

 

AIMS

  • To maintain in the IUPAB Council a current awareness of methods in biomedical spectroscopy and their applications
  • To provide linkages between IUPAB and organizations specializing in medical biophysics
  • To catalyze collaboration between specialists in biophysical and biomedical methods
  • To transfer the critical knowledge in this subject to scientists/physicians with limited access to it
  • To effect the translation of this type of research into clinical impact

 

PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

  • Provision of names and addresses of specialists in both fields to the IUPAB Council for membership on the Advisory Committee for the field
  • Organization of schools and/or workshops to catalyze collaboration between biophysical and biomedical scientists
  • Formation of linkages between IUPAB and other scientific organizations with potentially favourable overlap
  • Expansion of the biomedical content in the programme of the IUPAB Congress
  • Provision of updates on technology and applications for issues of IUPAB News
