Thanks to CREATE program, Karolina Paszkowska spent 2 months at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in prof. Francesco Stellacci group. She worked with bacteriophages and nanoparticles. The main goal of her research during the lab visit was to find a nanoparticle, which would deactivate bacteriophages and not kill bacteria.
On the 1st and 2nd October, Agnieszka Tadrzak, Patrycja Nitoń, Monika Kuczyńska-Wydorska took part in the MSCA 2018 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Annual Conference organized in Vienna, under the Austrian EU Presidency. The aim of the conference was to discuss strategic objectives in the EU research and education policy areas. This two-day conference was divided into: lectures, panel discussions and workshops.
The aim of the trip was the participation in 28th Anniversary World Congress on Biosensors (Biosensors 2018) taking place in Miami, Florida, USA. The conference is organized every two years by Elsevier and it is the largest and prestigious event related to new achievements and applications in the field of biosensors.
The goal of the visit was to carry first in the world investigation of full heart with use of OCT system. For that Michał Hamkało had to get newly extracted hearts of mice from an authorized laboratory in Goettingen and took it to Luebeck (to next cooperator) with help of dr Jan Christoph.
The purpose of the trip was to participate in “Laser Technology Symposium 2018” conference. The conference was devoted to the latest results in laser physics and technology developments, as well as to lasers’ applications: in spectroscopy, medicine, military and scientific uses. Jakub Bogusławski presented a talk entitled “Active mode-locking using graphene modulators”.
The aim of this visit was to participate in the 159th seminar of the International Center of Biocybernetics: Optics in Neuromonitoring, where Dawid Borycki delivered the talk entitled as: Monitoring time-of-flight-resolved temporal dynamics of optical field using interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS).
The goal of the Speckle2018 conference was to discuss and exchange ideas between scientists, engineers, and students dealing with speckle metrology and related techniques. This three-day conference consisted of high-level presentations from scientist from across Europe, America, and Asia, was an excellent platform and opportunity to interact with various optics specialist and have discussions.
The main goal of the reported trip was a study visit to the Optical Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at the University of Western Australia. Karol Karnowski met there with prof. Barry Cense (local group supervisor) and attended OBEL group meetings.
On the 22 – 23 February, 2018 Prof. dr. Jochen Blumberger, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London, UK came to IPC. Prof. Blumberger delivered seminar composed of 2 parts:
- “Inorganic Interfaces, Organic Materials and Energy Converting Enzymes: The Power of Computational Chemistry”,
- “The Art of Leading a Research Group”
All researchers and PhD students employed at IPC were invited to participate in this seminar – the seminar was attended by approx. 70 people.
The main purpose of visiting San Francisco was to take part in the Photonics West 2018 conference. The conference is the largest meeting of people from photonics and biomedical optics fields and gives the great opportunity to discuss and see current progress from these fields. The conference was attended by: Dawid Borycki, Michał Hamkało and Yuriy Stepanenko.
