Photonics for Infection Research: Federal Minister of Research and Thuringian Minister of Economics visit LPI
Light-based technologies offer enormous potential in the fight against infectious diseases. Their research as well as the development of effective diagnostic methods and therapies are to be revolutionized in Jena in the coming years with the Leibniz Center for Photonics in Infection Research (LPI). In order to get to know […]
The build up phase of the Leibniz Center for Photonics in Infection Research (LPI) is now starting with the implementation of novel technologies for the translation of revolutionizing diagnosis and therapy technologies for infectious diseases: More than 100 researchers as well as representatives of the Federal Ministry of Education and […]
Light-based methods are increasingly used for analytical problems in the fields of health, environment, medicine and safety. Raman spectroscopy in particular is a suitable method for this purpose. The measurement data collected in this process are complex and extensive molecular fingerprints. Artificial intelligence can help in the analysis of these […]
Jena University Hospital is coordinating a collaborative project that is now starting to accelerate the diagnosis of viral respiratory infections. The research project will use COVID-19 to develop methods and technologies that can detect viral outbreaks earlier and support their containment to be better prepared for future epidemics.
On October 26, representatives from politics, industry and science celebrated the LPI kick-off event in Jena – emphasizing the potential that Jena, the City of Light, has as a location for the center’s success.
