Scientific seminars with UL SPIE: it’s showtime of your research!

Most of the time, you develop your research in a relative isolation and only some people know how important and interesting your work is. The time has come to change this situation and reach a broader audience. University of Latvia SPIE chapter invites students to present their Bachelor, Master, PhD works and research ideas in a friendly environment.

Emilija telling about a novel skin imaging device design


On the 23rd of April, the first scientific seminar took place and SPIE chapter members shared their stories:

"Portable device for skin autofluorescence and diffuse reflectance imaging" by Emilija Vija Plorina.
A novel skin imaging device design is being developed in the University of Latvia Biophotonics Laboratory for a more practical use in the family's doctor's office as well as their home visits. This can potentially increase the chances of catching early cases of skin cancer by making the available technology more accessible.

"Development of thoracic aorta model from computed tomography and blood flow modelling within it" by Valts Liepins.
In a collaboration between University of Latvia Laboratory for Mathematical Modelling of Environmental and Technological Processes and Institute of Cardiology and Regenerative Medicine, a new method for computational blood flow simulation in thoracic aorta is being developed, using a 3D mesh based on computed tomography scans of patients' aorta. This could lead to a more precise method of diagnosing aortic aneurysm.

Valts explaining why computational blood flow simulation is beneficial

 Take a chance to practice before the thesis defense and get feedback! 
Apply for the next seminar that will be held on the 21st of May in the University of Latvia House of Science. Send an e-mail to info@ulspie.lv. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
