BBSRC is co-sponsoring this event.
The Laserlab-Europe Foresight workshop Lasers for Life is intended to be a forward look at the applications of lasers in the area of biological and biomedical research and will feature talks from leaders in the relevant areas, as well as from European policy makers. There will also be an exhibition by industrial sponsors. We expect around 180 delegates from throughout Europe will attend the workshop. Scientific sessions are:
- Medical Imaging, Diagnosis, and Therapy
Plenary Lecturers: Serge Mordon (INSERM, France), Brett Bouma (Harvard, USA)
- Complementary Approaches (including Synchrotrons, Free-Electron Lasers, and High-Power Lasers)
Plenary Lecturer: Henry Chapman (CFEL, Germany)
- Future Applications of Laser Spectroscopy and Imaging for Biological and Medical Research
Plenary Lecturer: Ernst Stelzer (Buchmann Institute, Germany)

Who is it for?
The workshop will also feature a horizon-scanning session looking at emerging scientific areas and technologies. We believe the workshop will be of interest to biological and medical researchers and clinicians with no previous experience of using laser techniques, who may wish to apply these methods, as well as to more experienced users of lasers for biomedical work.
The workshop fee of £160 includes meals during the meeting.
Accommodation is not included, but a block booking of rooms has been made at the London Copthorne Tara Hotel (cost of £170 for two nights, 2-3 June 2014 including bed and breakfast). Please visit the workshop's event page (link below) for more information.
Please visit www.laserlab-europe.eu/events-1/laserlab-events/2014/june-2014-lasers-for-life. Deadline for registration is 30 April 2014. When registering, delegates are requested to include a short description of their research interests.
In the event of oversubscription, delegates will be selected to achieve a good balance of science areas.
