SPIE-Hillenkamp Fellowship

The new SPIE-Franz Hillenkamp Postdoctoral Fellowship in Problem-Driven Biophotonics and Biomedical Optics will provide training opportunities for translating new technologies to clinical practice for improving human health.


Partnering with SPIE and four international biomedical optics laboratories — the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, the Manstein Lab in the Cutaneous Biology Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, Medical Laser Center Lübeck and the Beckman Laser Institute at University of California in Irvine — the Hillenkamp family has established the SPIE-Franz Hillenkamp Postdoctoral Fellowship in Problem-Driven Biophotonics and Biomedical Optics. 

The fellowship honors Hillenkamp's distinguished career as a researcher, teacher, and mentor who had enormous international impact. Young investigators with a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree are eligible to apply. There are no restrictions on geographical location; however, applicants and hosting labs must propose original research in biomedical optics that is expected to lead to new diagnostics and/or therapeutics in medicine and biology.

An annual award of US$75,000 will support the interdisciplinary problem-driven research and training opportunities.

Complete details on the criteria and application process will be provided by 1 September 2017.
