During May and June, members of the Biophotonics Group have been busy attending a number of international conferences to present work on both Foodsafe and optical coherence tomography. Most recently, two oral papers and two posters featured at the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics, in Munich, Germany. This is the largest forum in Europe for medical and biomedical researchers who work with optics and photonics and was collocated with the world’s largest laser trade fair. Dr Vanholsbeeck was also interviewed by the Optical Society of America (OSA), the leading professional society in optics and photonics.
In May, Dr Vanholsbeeck attended the Gender Summit 10 in science for the Asia Pacific region in Tokyo, Japan. This was an amazing opportunity to exchange ideas on how to make the science environment more diverse and equitable.
