SPIE Translational Biophotonics

Present your research on the latest applications of OCT, new technologies for diagnostic imaging and detection, 3D printing, point-of-care testing, and their translation to the clinic.

SPIE Translational Biophotonics explores the status and future of optical imaging for biomedical research and clinical applications. Organized by SPIE and Rice University, this meeting will enable cross-pollination and encourage continuing development of new technologies and techniques with the goal of successful translation into practical biomedical use.

Leaders in the field will discuss paths that led to their advancements and will also plot new directions for the future of optical imaging and photonics for both research and clinical applications. Clinicians will present their perspectives on application needs, while industry representatives will discuss pathways to commercialization. The poster session will be dedicated to new research advancements contributed by participants.
