SPIE establishes biophotonics technology development award

SPIE (Bellingham, WA) has established a new award—the Biophotonics Technology Innovator award—which will honor extraordinary achievements in biophotonics technology development that show strong promise or potential impact. To be presented annually, the award targets achievements that span disciplines and may include elements of basic research, technology development, and clinical translation.

Falling on the heels of last year's establishment of the Britton Chance Biomedical Optics award and its overwhelming response, says SPIE, the Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award recognizes deserving members of the biophotonics community who have made outstanding technical contributions and may be at a relatively early career stage.

The first Biophotonics Technology Innovator award will be presented in 2013; for more information, please visit http://spie.org/x88478.xml.
