VioBio Lab participates in Master Courses, Specialization Courses and Lab Visits

Visitas docencia collage

VioBio Lab has hosted more than 60 students this month in labs visits and courses:

  • Visual Optics and Biophotonics Course for the Interuniversity Master in Vision Sciences (Universidad de Valladolid, Universidad de Murcia, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Universidad de Alcalá, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela).
  • Introductory Course of Research in Optics. 23 students from 13 different Spanish universities attended the course this year. 
  • Physics Students (Optics and Photonics) from the University of Salamanca.
  • Erasmus Mundus MONABIPHOT Master in molecular nano- and bio-photonics (Ecole Normale Superieure of Cachan, France; Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain; University of Wroclaw, Polonia; University Paris Descartes, France).

Susana Marcos TEDx Talk already available online


Susana Marcos’ lecture at TEDx Saint Louis University can be now viewed online. She describes new technologies (in many cases inspired from astronomy) that have gone all the way from the lab into useful products to improve diagnosis in ophthalmology and quality of vision.
