Date:5/8/2013

SÃO PAOLO, Brazil (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

Spectroscopy and nonlinear techniques, PDT, microscopy and imaging, microbiological control, and cancer diagnostics and treatment highlighted sessions at the Advanced School on Modern Trends of Biophotonics for Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer and Microbial Control earlier this month in São Paolo.

Held at and organized locally by staff at the São Carlos Institute of Physics at the University of São Paolo 11-19 April, the event was sponsored by SPIE, the international society of optics and photonics, and the FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation). Co-sponsors were the University of São Paulo (USP) SPIE Student Chapter, MMO, Zeiss, and Thorlabs. Local organizers included USP professors Cristina Kurachi and Vanderlei Salvador Bagnato, and researchers Denise Maria Zezell, Lilian Tan Moriyama, and Natálie Mayumi Inada.

Students from 16 countries in South and North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East heard talks by speakers from Canada, the UK, Italy, Sweden, and the USA.

SPIE Past President Katarina Svanberg (Lund University) spoke on laser spectroscopy in tumor therapy, and SPIE Board Member Bruce Tromberg (Beckman Laser Institute) spoke on spectroscopy and tissue optics. SPIE Members Brian Wilson (Ontario Cancer Institute) and Timothy Zhu (University of Pennsylvania Health System) were also among the speakers.

"We had a great time during the nine days of the Brazilian Biophotonics School,” said Prof. Kurachi. “The students and
