The Spectroscopical Society of Japan

The international symposium in 2017

"Raman spectroscopy for biomedical applications"



The recent development in spectroscopical techniques has been expanding the applications of Raman spectroscopy. In particular, applications in biology, medicine, and pharmaceuticals are rapidly emerging with the new technology development in instrumentation and spectrum analysis with being supported by different scientific and technological disciplines. The symposium invites the scientists from all the research fields and provides a great opportunity to discuss the current and future advances in Raman spectroscopy and its biomedical applications.

This symposium will be held in corporation with several academic and scientific communities, and the members of the corporation societies can attend the symposium and present their research with the discounted fee. We are expecting many participants from other communities and having a great exchange between research fields related to Raman spectroscopy. The members of the corporation societies can also attend other sessions in the annual meeting and the reception party jointly held with the symposium.
