Why Visit the Conference & Exhibition

This is a networking event for everything photonics.

Be inspired! Learn what’s new, what’s next… discover who to collaborate with and how to achieve your aims!


This free to attend event offers a great way for you to meet with your peers at a high-level meeting and also the chance to develop personal, direct relationships with your suppliers.

Come and  join us for an exceptional, inter-disciplinary event that presents so many opportunities to learn about using photonics, advanced materials and the application of light technologies.

Conference: Advances in Photonic Tools and Techniques for the Life Sciences” 

The conference is ideal for anyone wishing to learn more about biophotonics, photonics and microscopy subjects in bio-medical-life science disciplines.

Speakers will present their latest work in this field and will give attendees an invaluable opportunity to learn about the latest technology developments and most interesting applications.

Sessions on novel spectroscopy, nanoscale imaging, biomedical applications of novel microscopy techniques, image analysis and imaging frontiers will showcase the vibrant research and state-of-the art in these areas with applications in understanding complex biological systems, improving diagnostics, biomedical imaging and therapy.

Meeting: Quantum Technologies Day

In recent years, and made possible by funding through The UK Quantum Technologies Programme, research in quantum technologies - considered to be those that harness quantum physics to gain a functionality or performance which is otherwise unattainable - has taken a huge leap forward. Now they are numerous potential opportunities and quantum technologies utilised in real-world applications will have a real impact. Should you be using them? Attend this meeting to discover more.


Most recently Quantum Technologies, single photon detection arrays, have been applied in the latest LiDAR systems and in spectroscopic techniques such as fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) for example.

Keynote Speaker


Prof Banafshé Larijani will give a headline presentation on “Oncoprotein activation and dynamics in cancer: A new vision of cancer diagnostics.”

Banafshé Larijani is the Director of the Centre for Therapeutic Innovation (CTI) at the University of Bath and her Cell Biophysics laboratory is currently bridged between the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology at Bath and The Biophysics Institute (Instituto Biofisika) at the University of the Basque Country, Spain.
