SPEC2018 will bring together clinicians and scientists, both industrial and academic, developing novel clinical spectroscopic instrumentation and techniques to improve world health and patient outcome. Recent advances in the biological sciences have led to an increasing demand for rapid, objective, real time and minimally invasive chemical techniques to deliver information suitable for the clinic, Vibrational spectroscopy has a unique capability to provide this information and can play a significant role in histopathology, cytology, surgery, treatment monitoring and therapeutic development.
This the 10th conference in the successful SPEC series provides an ideal opportunity for reflection on developments over the last two decades and to focus on future developments. As such there will be significant focus in the scientific programme on clinical translation / implementation and opportunities for the development of future scientists to lead this exciting multidisciplinary field
We look forward to welcoming SPEC2018 in Glasgow to provide the international community with a highly interactive and scientifically excellent conference to the further the translation of promising spectroscopic technology and to prove that Scotland’s reputation for legendary hospitality is well deserved.
