In solidarity with the people in Israel
We are deeply shocked by Hamas‘ belligerent attacks on Israel and by the terrible violence against civilians. Our thoughts are with those who have lost their lives and with their families, with those who have been injured and with all those who are still in danger and suffering the consequences of terror. Our sympathies are especially extended to our researchers from Israel, our colleagues at our Israeli partner universities and institutes, and their families.
In addition to many individual collaborations among researchers, we also have numerous partnerships with research institutes and universities in Israel and Palestine – for example, with Hebrew University, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Bar Ilan University, Tel Aviv University, Bethlehem University and other universities in Palestine.
As an international institute with more than 400 employees from 36 countries, with different cultures, lifestyles and worldviews, we are committed every day to creating an environment characterized by open-mindedness and mutual tolerance. We respect everyone’s opinion and are committed to peaceful coexistence.
Raman spectroscopy as a diagnostic tool – a stimulus for interdisciplinary collaboration
Efficient collaboration across disciplines is the foundation for successfully researching new ideas and paving the way for innovative technologies and processes. Dr. Anja Silge, Head of the Applied Biospectroscopy/Bio Assays Working Group at Leibniz IPHT, and Dr. Stefanie Deinhardt-Emmer, specialist in microbiology and virology at Jena University Hospital, are working on joint research projects on how Raman spectroscopy can support modern diagnostics. In this interview, they explain how the medical perspective and expertise in biological imaging complement each other perfectly, what role interdisciplinarity plays for them and how progress can be made towards faster diagnostics.
Label-free optical imaging for medical diagnostics: Leibniz IPHT research focus in the spotlight of the renowned journal Nature Photonics
International pioneers in the research of label-free optical imaging provide an overview of the fundamentals and the diverse application potential of these innovative methods for medical diagnostics in the journal Nature Photonics. Among the four authors is the Scientific Director of the Leibniz IPHT in Jena, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Popp.
