Event Info

Now in its second year, Strategies in Biophotonics is THE conference and exhibition for biophotonics on the East Coast. No other event brings together the top names in the industry for both the conference program as well as the exhibit hall.

This two-day conference and exhibition addresses critical but often-overlooked issues that technology innovators must address in order to succeed in efforts to commercialize biophotonics-based systems. The program will highlight key examples to present clinical and scientific needs, demonstrate how biomedical optics and photonics can address them, and discuss what needs to happen for the technologies to reach that goal.
