“We are launching this small competition to show our commitment to the next generation of researchers and clinicians”, says Seppo Orsila, Executive Chairman of Modulight and continues: “Our strategy is to make lasers & optics for personalized medicine and better life. What could be a better way to enhance this than to provide the best tools for the young clinicians and residents. We hope that as many young clinicians as possible will participate our 2016 workshops – schedule for which we’ll announce in October. While these events provide an excellent platform for networking we only have limited number of seats and we may need to limit participation based on first come first served, relevance of study and seniority.”
Deadline for submitting the research plans is 31st of January 2016. The plans will be prescreened and sorted by Modulight with aim to ease the independent evaluators screening. Final decision is above mentioned experts.
“We constantly see new breed of clinicians with interest to immunotherapy yet they often lack the proper tools for their studies. We hope this will make a small improvement,” says Petteri Uusimaa, President of Modulight.
