    The international Biophotonics and Imaging Graduate Summer School (BIGSS) is a 5 ECTS credit course run every two years in partnership with Photonics 4 Life and SPIE as an intimate gathering located in the rugged landscape of west coast of Ireland.  The peripheral location and limited student numbers are specifically chosen to foster student-tutor interaction and enhance the learning experience. Each school offers an excellent group of international experts giving 4hr lecture series in their specialist areas.  There is a focus on quantitative imaging in diagnosis and therapy this year which I think is also very topical.

    This year, our speakers will cover modules such as:

    Optical Coherence Tomography

    High Frequency Ultrasound

    Photoacoustic Spectroscopy and Tomography

    Fluorescence Molecular Imaging

    Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues

    Non-linear Photonics, Lasers and Optical Information Processing

    Optical Techniques for Diagnosis and Guidance of Therapy

    Photodynamic therapy (PDT)


    As always we have a special emphasis on Commercialising Your Research and we are delighted to announce that this year’s tutorial will be led by Hugh Cormican (CEO of Cirdan Imaging and former CEO/co-founder of Andor).
