Fourth Annual National Short Course in Computational Biophotonics, 1-5 August 2016
Each day of the short course is structured around a biomedical “theme”; together these themes span a broad range of current biomedical research activity. Morning sessions will feature two lectures, the first providing biomedical context for the daily theme and the second describing models and computational approaches keyed to the theme. Afternoons will be devoted to demonstrations of the daily biomedical technology, hands-on computational laboratories using the unique Virtual Tissue Simulator computational platform, trainee presentations, and moderated discussions. The fourth Short Course builds upon the success of annual Virtual Photonics Workshops and the previous Short Courses held at UC Irvine.
