The competition "Lab visits under the CREATE project”- OPENS 12th September, 2018
LAB VISIT DURATION: 2 weeks - 3 months
FUNDING: up to EUR 3,500.00 /month
The Foundation for Polish Science (FPS) has announced the winner of the latest edition of the International Research Agendas (IRAP) programme. Professor Maciej Wojtkowski, the ERA Chair holder under the CREATE project was granted PLN 35 m. to establish the International Center for Translational Eye Research (ICTER).
A new issue of NCP_WIDE.NET Bulletin, which is an official bulletin of a network of National Contact Points, has just arrived. Inside (p. 11) there is a 4-pages article on the CREATE project.
"ERA Chairs: where innovation is CREATED" written by Agnieszka Tadrzak, CREATE Project Manager, explains the foreground of the project, describes research profile of the acquired ERA Chair holder - Professor Maciej Wojtkowski, and his contribution to closing excellence gap between the Institute of Physical Chemistry, PAS and the European Research Area. It also explains research conducted by Professor Wojtkowski and his team in popular science language. In particular, it shows potential impact of this research on health of Europeans - i.e. possibilty to elaborate new therapies against various visual dysfunctions, including age-related.
Marcin Marzejon visited the Institute of Physics NCU to measure two-photon vision threshold values. During his visit, two subjects suffering from cataracts were investigated. For every subject, measurements of visual acuity test and visual field test were performed.
Professor M. Wojtkowski and his team participated in conference Biophotonics Congress: Optics in the Life Sciences, organized by Optical Society of America. This event provided researchers with opportunity to discuss design, fabrication, and application of biomedical optical technologies for life sciences.
Main goal of reported trip was a study visit to 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.

SPIE Photonics West, the leading global event for the photonics and laser industries took place in San Francisco early February 2019. Attendees enjoyed a week full of cutting-edge research (over 5,000 presentations) and courses, two world-class exhibitions (1,300 companies), a robust industry program, and plenty of networking opportunities.
