Presenter Disclosures

Educational Needs These sessions will promote understanding of:

  • The use of light in medicine for treatment, in which photons transfer their energy to specific targets to modify tissues
  • The use of light in medicine for imaging and diagnostics, in which photons interrogate the structure and function of cells and tissue.
  • How photomedicine is advancing patient care.

Participants Clinicians, scientists, researchers, developers.

Background Requirements Basic knowledge of skin and major structural components, skin extracellular matrix remodeling, and basic light-tissue interactions.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives Participants will learn about: 

  • New strategies for creating target selectivity with nanoparticles in light-mediated treatments.
  • Advances in drug delivery using fractional lasers and in understanding the skin response to this laser modality. 
  • New light-based technologies that aim to enable medical diagnostics and testing at the time and place of patient care.

"Hot topics"

  • Bedside Diagnostics.
  • Low-Cost Medical Devices.
  • Point of Care Technologies.
  • Drug Delivery.
  • Nanotechnology.
  • Photothermal Mechanisms.
