Supporting the SPIE-Hillenkamp Fellowship

Support the Fellowship

SPIE has partnered with the Hillenkamp family and three international biomedical optics laboratories to establish the fellowship.

These Founding Labs are:

  • The Wellman Center for Photomedicine (USA)
  • The Manstein Lab in the Cutaneous Biology Research Center (USA)
  • Medical Laser Center Lübeck (Germany)

SPIE encourages enduring support of this important fellowship through partnership with other laboratories and by industry sponsorship.

Organizations can maximize visibility while increasing impact, credibility, and prestige by partnering with or sponsoring future Hillenkamp Fellows.

Industry Sponsorship Opportunities

Fellows are required to spend 80 percent of their effort performing hands-on research on a specific project in the hosting lab, and 20 percent on training in translational research capability and strategy. The overarching goal is to “translate” new solutions all the way to impact in medicine. This strategy intrinsically creates new opportunities for companies in the field.

Sponsorship includes:

  • Listing on all promotional materials for the fellowship for the entire duration of their sponsorship.

  • Invitation to the SPIE annual meeting at Photonics West and a special session bringing together the
    Selection Committee, External Review Committee, SPIE leadership, and fellowship alumni.
