OILTEBIA (Optical Imaging and Laser TEchniques for BIomedical Applications) is an Initial Training Network (ITN) that seeks to provide advance training to early stage researchers in novel biomedical optical imaging and laser techniques for applications spanning from basic research and drug discovery to pre-clinical imaging and clinical translation, from the bench to the bedside. These medical imaging techniques are beginning to move from the laboratory to the hospital, in consequence in the following years there are going to be a necessity of experts in this field.
The main objective of the network is to provide a training framework by establishing a crossroad among the different technical domains that overlap on this multidisciplinary topic, gathering experts in the domains of biomedical applications, laser optical sources, ultrasound sensors, signal processing and imaging algorithms from physics, chemistry, biology and engineering backgrounds.
The consortium consists of 13 partners: 4 University partners, 3 Research Laboratories and 6 Industrial Partners.
OILTEBIA is an Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme. Grant Agreement Number 317526.
This four year project has been running since 01/04/2013.
