SPEC 2018 – An Overview
The international SPEC conference series brings together clinicians and scientists who are developing and improving Recent advances in the biological sciences and medicine have led to an increasing demand for rapid, objective, real time and minimally invasive chemical and structural information suitable for the clinic. Vibrational spectroscopy has a unique capability to provide this information and could play a significant role in histopathology, cytology, surgery, treatment monitoring and therapeutic development. This will be the 10th in the series and
Wide-ranging and engaging, the SPEC 2018 programme will provide a comprehensive examination of the innovative pre-clinical and clinical applications of vibrational spectroscopy that can lead to health care delivery improvements, as well as insights into how delegates can, in turn, develop and improve the future for our industry.
The 10th in the series, the SPEC 2018 conference programme commences on Sunday 10th June with our pre-conference workshops. Monday 11th June sees the start of the conference and each day we have a challenging and industry-leading plenary keynote.
The programme provides an ideal opportunity for reflection on developments over the last two decades as well as focusing on future developments. There will be a significant focus on clinical translation/implementation and the opportunities for the development of future scientists to lead this exciting multidisciplinary field.
