We are pleased to announce the that will take place on Wednesday, 4 May 2022, at 4pm CET.

Adapting to an emerging pandemic to find a role for medical optics in COVID-19 patients and more
Speaker: Turgut Durduran (ICFO)
Moderator: Erwin J.G. Peterman (LaserLab Amsterdam)

"When COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns started, we sought to evaluate whether our technologies for evaluating tissue oxygen metabolism and hermodynamics with photonics could be helpful. A sequence of coincidences, bright postdocoral fellows and an overworked intensive care physician with an amazing insight into the needs came together for us to embark in an international, multi-center clinical trial with minimal funding. This then led to a Horizon 2020 project partially enabled by our longstanding collaborations in LaserLab JRAs. In the talk i will describe the technologies, their fundamental physical background, how we are using them and what we believe their future impact would be."

The Laserlab-Europe Talks consist of a series of online seminars and panel discussions proposed and organised by our community on specific topics (thematic or research-specific) and provide a platform for regular information exchange and knowledge sharing.

The talks take place bi-weekly on Wednesday afternoons at 16h00 CET and are open to all interested parties, from PhD students to experts in the field and industrial and medical partners as appropriate.
