Dawid Borycki participated in var Sovia = new Tech meeting get updates on novel IT technologies provided by Microsoft. Specifically, Mixed Reality devices (HoloLens), Machine Learning (Microsoft Cognitive Services) and computation platforms (Biological Computing).
To support internationalization of PhD Studies held at IPC and allow for an inflow of foreign students at IPC , Agnieszka Tadrzak, the Project Manager at the CREATE project joined Marie Sklodowska-Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) took part in:a kick-off meeting of the Polish Chapter of MCAA (Warsaw, Poland, the 6th March, 2017), 2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly (Salamanca, Spain, the 24-25th March, 2017).
This conference served as part of the SPIE Photonics West 2017 - the world's largest multidisciplinary event for photonics technologies collocated with one of the largest photonic exhibition.
Innovation Source: The Israeli start-ups’ eco-system - How to commercialize technologies from the Academia?
The first open lecture under a series of “Innovation source” was held on the 26th Oct., 2016 at the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS (IPC). The purpose of the above series of lectures is to update scientists’ knowledge of current technological trends and innovation in chemistry-related sectors, as well as establishment of relations with business.
On the 19 – 20 October, 2017 Dr. Egidijus Auksorius, from the Institut Langevin, Paris, France came to IPC. Dr. Egidijus Auksorius delivered an open for all IPC researchers (incl. PhD students) lecture: “Full-field optical coherence tomography: from micro to macro imaging”. During this seminar Dr. Auksorius introduced several different imaging techniques, beginning with Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, the Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM), which was joined with STED in the experimental system, and then focusing on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM).
Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) has emerged as a leading super-resolution imaging approach for nanoscale visualization of molecular structures in cells. During the periods of visiting in the lab of Prof. Rothenberg at New York University, Xuzhu Zhang was trained to perform SMLM experiments regarding on DNA damage response (DDR) of U2OS cells under the treatment of chemical drug Hydroxyurea (HU).
Dawid Borycki presented a talk entitled Internet of Things. Building machine vision system supported by artificial intelligence. The presentation was devoted to explain how to build low-budget machine vision system utilizing the Windows 10 IoT Core, machine learning, and custom image processing routines implemented with OpenCV.
The main goal of Łukasz Richter trip was lab visit in group of Prof. Howard A. Stone at Princeton University (NJ, USA). In collaboration with Paweł Żuk from Prof. Stone lab they recently started theoretical analysis of results obtained during his research internship at Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal in Bordeaux, where Łukasz used surface forces apparatus (SFA).
The purpose of this business trip was to perform collaborative work on the interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS). More specifically, experiments to quantify optical properties in dynamic media were performed. Then, the data was processed numerically using the new method of correlation gating to separate ballistic and scattered light transmitted through thick samples.
Mounika Rapolu participated in the lab visit to BIOMEDICAL PHOTONIC IMAGING LAB headed by Professor Wang-Yuhl (William) Oh at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. The Institute is involved in learning the techniques for in-vivo mouse brain surgery protocol to achieve high quality cranial window and imaging with contrast agent intralipid with 1300 nm optical coherence microscopy(OCM).
