Symposium at UC Davis showcases range of medical applications for light-based technologies
The National Center for Interventional Biophotonic Technologies (NCIBT), part of a national network of engineers and clinician-scientists, hosted its inaugural symposium on the Davis campus on September 29 and 30.
The new center was established earlier this year with a prestigious $6.3 million P41 grant from NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. Laura Marcu is the director of NCIBT and a professor in the UC Davis College of Engineering’s Department of Biomedical Engineering.
The hybrid in-person and virtual event brought together leading biophotonic researchers from 13 institutions, some from as far away as Germany. The goal was to exchange ideas, foster collaboration, and celebrate the launch of NCIBT at UC Davis.
