Xmark Media, in association with Imperial College, will hold Photonex London on Thursday 26 April, in the first of a series of free regional events focusing on applications of photonics.
Following on from numerous requests from industry, organiser of Photonex, Xmark Media, is organising a series of one-day regional roadshows that facilitate face-to-face discussions with scientists and researchers who work with the latest tools and techniques in the world of photonics.
The scientific programme is being led by Dr Chris Dunsby, a joint lecturer working in photonics for Imperial College's Department of Physics and its Division of Experimental Medicine in the Department of Medicine. Co-chairs are Dr Simon Schulz, senior lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, also at Imperial College, and Dr Pete Tomlin of the Centre for Diagnostic & Oral Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London. The theme of the conference is advances in photonics tools and techniques for the life sciences.
In parallel to the scientific conference, there will be a series of tutorials to demonstrate the latest photonics techniques available for scientists. These will follow the format established at the main Photonex event, which will again take place in October this year at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.
