Latest Results of CRIMSON Project Presented at the SPIE Photonics West Conference in San Francisco

From January 27th to February 1st, the latest findings of the CRIMSON project were presented at the SPIE Photonics West conference in San Francisco. Led by project coordinator Prof. Dario Polli, a team of researchers had the opportunity to discuss their recent work through several presentations.

Here are some impressions from the speakers.

Marco Ventura: At SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco I presented our results of the CRIMSON project from the preclinical study on osteopetrosis, a rare bone disease, using our Raman spectroscopy setup. It was such an amazing experience!

Salvatore Sorrentino: Exciting week at SPIE Photonics West Conference in San Francisco! I presented my work on deep learning for early detection of senescence cells via non-linear microscopy ( and enjoyed engaging in discussions with amazing scientists!”


Arianna Bresci: Last week I presented at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco my collaborative work at the MIT Laser Biomedical Research Center and Politecnico di Milano VIBRA Lab, in the context of the CRIMSON project. It was great to share for the first time these results with the community, and discuss bio-photonics prospectives with the most brilliant minds in the field!”

Chiara Ceconello: “Thrilled to share exciting results from the Photonics West conference! I showcased the development of a wide-field CARS microscope with video-rate potential, a milestone realized through the CRIMSON project. It was truly inspiring to share these results with fellow researchers and explore the exciting possibilities for bio-photonics applications!
