Using cellphones as microscopes

Two weeks from now, Los Angeles scientist and innovator Aydogan Ozcan is coming to Malmö for a big conference.
He is also attending The Bridge Talk in Malmö, June 25, talking about how we can use cellphones as microscopes enhanced by artificial intelligence.

– The exciting thing is that he shows how you can use very simple and abundant tools for advanced applications such as medical diagnosis, says Heiner Linke, Director of NanoLund.

– In many countries around the world, we have a problem with infrastructure. But cellphones are widespread even in the poorest countries. By using them for different kinds of diagnosis – to analyse a sample or to be able to send away the results and then receive answers – means that we can reach the whole world with technology that normally is too expensive.

Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to Aydogan Ozcan’s powerful and disruptive ideas for bringing cost effective microscopy and micro-analysis to remote and developing countries.

When: June 25th
Time: 8.30 – 10.00 (coffee between 8.30-9.00)
