post-doctoral fellows enjoyed a pleasant environment in which the close contact with top researchers resulted in scientific discussions on advanced topics on biophotonics. The school presented speakers and students from different nationalities, which created a diversity-rich group of attendees. I believe that collaborations and network contacts were established during the school that will contribute to ongoing international exchange of knowledge and human resources."
Biomedical research at the University of São Paulo Campus São Carlos is outstanding and very promising with very talented leadership of enthusiastic researchers,” Dr. Svanberg said. She noted that collaborations between academia, government, and industry in the region are helping to increase biophotonics treatment options for patients, citing an increase in the number of centers using PDT (photo-dynamic therapy) for melanoma as an example.
A paper describing an efficient method of synthesis, separation, and biofunctionalization of gold nanoparticles for use as probes for biological imaging won the Student Best Paper Award.
Tiitled “Gold nanorods and nanoshells – characteristics and preparation for theranostics applications,” the paper was authored by Marta Gödel (Wroclaw Univ. of Technology and CNRS Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan), Joanna Olesiak-Banska, Kaytarzyna Matczyszyn, and Marek Samoc (Wroclaw Univ. of Technology), and Claude Nogues and Malcolm Buckle (CNRS Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan).
The award was funded by the SPIE Digital Library, and included free registration to an SPIE event, a $2,000 travel grant, and an award certificate.
“Students are the future of our field and of the world, and I am proud to actively support their work and their efforts to build careers in optics and photonics,” Svanberg said. “Photonics enables advances in basic research as well as applications that improve everyday life. In my own field, oncol
