BMEGG Students attend Summer School on Clinical Biophotonics in Germany.

JeDis Summer School participants in Jena, Germany.

UC Davis BMEGG Ph.D. Students Brent Weyers, Amy Becker, Oybek Kholiqov, Justin Migacz, and Xiangnan Zhou journeyed with UC Davis colleagues to Jena, Germany to participate in a Summer School on Clinical Biophotonics.  The trip was funded under a grant that Dr. Laura Marcu and Dr. Juergen Popp (Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology) co-wrote to promote collaboration in clinical biophotonics between UC Davis and the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology.

Brent Weyers reports, “I loved the opportunity to explore how research is being conducted at a foreign institution. This program provided me new perspectives and insight on the latest clinical research being conducted in the biophotonics field, and provided me with a rich network of students, scholars and faculty for brainstorming and discussing concepts with pertaining to my own research.”

Additional details about the trip are available from the Leibiniz Institute of Photonic Technology.
