Dr Claude Boccara and LLTECH’s Digital Pathology Technology Receive Prestigious NIH Bench-to-Bedside Pioneer Award
At the conclusion of the first day of the 7th NIH Inter-Institute Workshop on Optical Diagnostic and Biophotonics Methods from Bench to Bedside, Professor Boccara has received the prestigious NIH Bench to Bedside Pioneer Award from the hands of Dr Amir Gandjbakhche, Program Chair and Chief of Section of the NIH Laboratory of Integrative and Medical Biophysics.
The NIH Inter-Institute Optical Diagnostic and Biophotonics Methods Workshop is a bi-annual event that brings together world-wide experts in the diagnosis and treatment of several important health issues. The format include lectures by top people in the biophotonics field, as well as panels of experts addressing key unmet medical needs in the area of imaging and optical methods.
“NIH Bench-to-Bedside Pioneer Award recognizes how basic science can lead to breakthrough and technology achievement that results in medical and industry driven products. These achievements should have a major impact in the improvement and cost reduction of cared delivery, decreasing the cost and morbidity of existing technologies." says Dr Amir Gandjbakhche, Program Chair. In addition to several NIH leaders, the Program and Award committee is composed of world- renowned Experts and leaders in the field.
About Pr Claude Boccara

About LLTech Light-CT Technology
LLTech's Light-Coherent Tomography (Light-CTTM) provides a non-sacrificial digital cellular imaging solution for the Hospital and the Life-Sciences Pathology Lab. Using light instead of ultrasounds, the Light-CT can scan tissues and display high resolution (<1micron) 2D and 3D fully digital images. Amongst other, the key applications of the product are in Rapid and non destructive 2D and 32D Digital Pathology, bio-banking tissue quality control and real-time, non destructive 3D imaging of Stem Cell.
LLTech is a privately owned company founded in 2007. LLTech vision is to become the leader in real time, safe, non-destructive optical biopsies and cellular level tissue imaging for research and clinical applications (micro biopsies assessment, surgical margins…). Using the properties of white light and optics the Light-CT research scanner generates DICOM 3D high-resolution three-dimensional images of tissue microstructure, without introducing artifacts.
