Training in Methods and Devices for Non-Invasive High Resolution Optical Measurements and Imaging

The network educated by research 20 Marie Curie early stage research training (EST) fellows, 10 towards PhD, 3 towards MSc and 7 fellows on short stage fellowships that lasted between 3 and 13 months. The Marie Curie fellows were trained by research on devices, systems and methods for non-invasive high resolution optical measurements and imaging (HIRESOMI) in general and in optical coherence tomography (OCT), confocal microscopy, adaptive optics (AO), vision and biomedical sensing in particular. The network operated at a European dimension by educating the fellows according to a structured training program which employed the expertise in interdisciplinary fields existent within the network.
