Short Course 2024

Multiscale Biophotonics: A Platform for Interdisciplinary Research Training and Career Development, July 23rd - August 2nd 2024

This new annual series of Multiscale Biophotonics short courses builds on our previous Computational Biophotonics courses from 2013-2018. Expanding from a 5-day to a 12-day program, it offers comprehensive training in technical, operational, and professional skills for Biophotonics researchers. Trainees will receive technical and professional mentorship to achieve research and professional goals. The technical component of the course comprises lectures and technology demonstrations in biological microscopy, biophotonics simulation software, ex vivo optical property determination, speckle imaging, wide-field spectroscopic imaging, and diffuse optics. Hands-on labs provide operational skills training, while professional skills training focuses on team science to enhance the trainee’s ability to lead and work within multidisciplinary teams. Panel discussions support professional development, and technical and professional mentors will assist the trainees with a year-long problem-based learning project and provide career guidance.
