Biophotonics '13

The 6th International Graduate Summer School Biophotonics '13 held in June 2013 at Backafallsbyn on the Island of Ven emphasised superresolution microscopy and molecular imaging, while also educating about the state of the art in medical optical imaging. It was a huge success in terms of education, scientific exchange, and personal friendships.

We, the organizers, would like to express our gratitude to the lecturers for taking time to teach at the school and spending valuable time with the students. It is admirable that all lecturers participated without receiving any fee. We also greatly appreciate the financial support and donations we received from various sponsors making this event possible.

Furthermore, we extend our thanks to all participants for their enthusiastic contributions during the discussions following the lectures and especially during the poster sessions.


The 6th International Graduate summer school Biophotonics '13 covered the following main areas:

  • Tissue optics
  • Optical trapping and their applications in biophotonics
  • STED microscopy
  • Fluorescence life-time imaging
  • Molecular imaging based on optical methods
  • Optical coherence tomography and coherence domain optical methods in biomedicine
  • Photo-acoustic imaging
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Lasers and their application in medicine
