Biophotonics and Imaging Graduate Summer School (BIGSS) 2024

Tissue Optics and Microcirculation Imaging (TOMI), University of Galway
05-09 August 2024
Kylemore Abbey, Galway, Ireland

The biennial BIGSS event is a five ECTS accredited course with leading professors teaching for approximately four hours each to give a substantial grounding in the main topics of Biophotonics in the beautfiful Kylemore Abbey, Galway Ireland, recently refurbished by the University of Notre Dame.

This is our ninth Biophotonics and Imaging Graduate Summer School. It is an important opportunity for graduate students in 2024 to access the kind of close contact with leading professors that only this kind of environment facilitates.

Speakers for this year's summer school include:

Steve Jacques (Tufts University): Tissue Optics and Laser-Tissue Interactions

Caroline Boudoux (University of Montreal): Endoscopy

Brian Pogue (University of Wisconsin): Optics in Surgery & Radiation Therapy - Photochemistry / Radiochemistry

Kirill V. Larin (University of Houston): Optical Coherence Tomography

Irina Larina (Baylor College of Medicine): Vital Fluorescence Reporters, Sensors, and Optogenetic Tools for Biophotonics

Irving Bigio (Boston University): Polarized Light in Biomedical Optics
