Workshop on spectroscopic imaging in July
June 11, 2015
Purdue is holding a workshop on July 9-10 to present the most recent advances in spectroscopic imaging platforms, which could lead to innovative research tools and medical diagnostics by looking inside living cells.
The Fifth Summer Workshop on Spectroscopic Imaging also will provide a platform for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty to learn "label-free" imaging technologies through lab training. The imaging is referred to as "label-free" because it does not require samples to be marked with dyes, making it appealing for diagnostic applications.
The first day of the workshop will be dedicated to a symposium with talks given by leaders and experts in the spectroscopic imaging field. A poster session will follow for participants to exchange their current research. The second day will provide lab training by Ji-Xin Cheng, a professor in Purdue's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Chemistry, and his group.
Information about the workshop, including how to register, is available at http://www.conf.purdue.edu/spectro. The registration deadline is June 18.
