Optical Techniques in Biological Physics Meeting

The Biological Physics Group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is hosting a half-day meeting on Thursday 17 February, on the subject of 'Optical Techniques in Biological Physics'.  The meeting brings together researchers from the physical and life sciences with an interest in optical techniques (imaging, spectroscopy, optical traps, etc) for a series of short talks and discussions on opportunities for future interdisciplinary work.  The programme for the day is:

2.00 Introduction (Phil Jones)
2.10 Clare Elwell (Medical Physics & Bioengineering) The use of near infra-red spectroscopy to measure tissue oxygenation, haemodynamics and metabolism
2.40 Angus Bain (Physics) Time-resolved fluorescence studes of biomolecular structure, interactions & dynamics
3.10 Angus Silver (NPP) The acousto-optics lens two-photon microscope and its application to neuroscience
3.40 Tea break
4.00 Chris Thrasivoulou (Cell & Developmental Biology) title tbc
4.30 Guillaume Charras (LCN) Imaging challenges in molecular cell biology

5.00 Open discussions
