SPIE-sponsored Biophotonics School in Brazil Looks at Cancer Treatment, Disease Control
Date:5/8/2013

ogy, photonics has enabled development of more effective and at the same time less invasive methods of detecting and treating cancer with modalities utilizing lasers and other optical technologies.”

The SPIE Student Chapter at the University of São Paulo was established in 2011, and has 18 members. Members are active on campus with seminars and promotion of optics and photonics in conjunction with courses of study and involvement of their school, and have heard invited speakers through the SPIE Visiting Lecturer Program.

Most recently, SPIE Fellow Michael Hamblin (Harvard Medical School, MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology and Wellman Ctr. for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital) lectured on photodynamic and low-level laser therapies.

The São Carlos Institute of Physics, an interdisciplinary research center, coordinates several Brazilian research networks in multidisciplinary fields such as optics and photonics, structural biology, ceramic materials, nanobiotechnology, scientific computing and organic electronics.

About SPIE

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 225,000 constituents from approximately 150 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional networking, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2012.
