'Hot Topics' in biophotonics

Hot Topics, the plenary for the SPIE Biomedical Optics Symposium (BiOS) at SPIE Photonics West 2014 (San Francisco, CA), is set to serve up inspiration on Saturday, February 1, from 7–9 pm. Following SPIE President H. Philip Stahl’s announcement of the Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award and the Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award winners, eight selected speakers will present:

  • Bruce Tromberg of the Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic, University of California, Irvine, will discuss diffuse optical methods for assessing breast cancer chemotherapy
  • Eric Seibel of the University of Washington will explain scanning fiber endoscopy
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT) pioneer Eric Swanson of OCT News will report on research, funding, and entrepreneurism in clinical translation of OCT
  • David Boas of Massachusetts General Hospital will describe optical spectroscopy and tomography of oxygen delivery
  • Lihong Wang at Washington University in St. Louis will demonstrate the advantages of photoacoustic tomography
  • Stanford University’s Jelena Vuckovic will focus her talk on single-cell photonic nanocavity probes
  • Paul Selvin of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will report on quantum dots for brain imaging
  • Rafael Yuste of Columbia University, a pioneer behind the U.S.’s Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative (BRAIN Initiative), will explain how and why optical imaging is key for neuroscience
