    Organized by SPIE and Rice University, this meeting enables discussion between these related communities and encourage continuing development of new technologies and techniques with the goal of successful translation into practical biomedical use.

    Leaders in the field will discuss paths that led to their advancements and will also plot new directions for the future of optical imaging for both research and clinical applications. Clinicians will present their perspectives on application needs, while industry representatives will discuss pathways to commercialization. The poster session is dedicated to new research advancements contributed by participants.
