Life sciences

The many photonic tools (fibre optics, lasers, microscopes, probes) are revolutionising life sciences and medicine. Light is an effective and non-invasive tool for medical diagnosis and treatment.

Advances in photonics are enabling early diagnosis of various diseases through imaging and analysis of information by artificial intelligence.

Sectors concerned

  • Chemistry, Biochemistry
  • Biology, microbiology  
  • Bioinformatics  
  • Physics
