Qingming Luo，Dr. Luo is the Executive Deputy Director of Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO) and vice-principal of Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China. Dr. Luo is a Fellow of SPIE and IET. His research interest is multi-scale optical bioimaging and cross-level information integration. Dr. Luo serves as the chief scientist of the project Novel Technologies and Methods of Optical Molecular Imaging for Protein Function in Vivo, which is supported by the National Basic Research Program of China. Dr. Luo was named the Cheung Kong Professor of Biomedical Photonics by the Ministry of Education of China in 1999. He has obtained more than 50 patents and published approximately 300 papers in high standard journals worldwide, including Science, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communication, Optics Letters, Optics Express and Journal of Biomedical Optics et al.
Francesco Pavone，Dr. Pavone works for the European Laboratory for Nonlinear Spectroscopy and Department of Physics, University of Florence, Italy. He serves as editors in several international journals and books, and he has coordinated several European projects. His main research activity is in the field of biophotonics on single molecule biophysics, laser manipulation of bio-samples et al. Particularly, he is leading his research group exploring new microscopy techniques aiming for high resolution and high sensitivity imaging and laser manipulation. In the area of tissue imaging, the research team has applied nonlinear optical techniques for skin and neural tissue imaging. Dr. Pavone has published approximately 140 acdamic papers and given more than 50 invited talks in international conferences of his research field.
Ling Fu，Dr.Fu currently works for Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), and Britton Chance Center for Biomedical Photonics, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO), China. Her research interests focus on exploring optical microscopy and its applications in biomedicine. In order to monitor how molecules work and cells interact in the natural environment, she has been directing her group in developing real-time nonlinear optical imaging approaches. Dr. Fu has published many high-quality papers in acdamic journals. She serves as an assistant editor in Journal of Innovative Optical Health Sciences, an International Council member of Optical Society of America (OSA), a senior member of Chinese Optical Society (COS) and the leader of youth working team in Biomedical Photonics Committee in COS. She is also the Chair of Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Photonics and Imaging in Biology and Medicine (PIBM). She was elected as the New Century Excellent Talents in University by the Ministry of Education.
