24 May 2023: WINTHER at Pint of Science 2023!

On 24 May 2023, WINTHER took part in the global science festival, Pint of Science where TUM scientist and clinician, Dr. Chiara Fischer, gave a popular science talk titled “Seeing the Unseen: how light, ultrasound and blood vessels can help detect skin cancer”. In her talk, Chiara discussed how Raster-Scan Optoacoustic Mesoscopy (RSOM), the output of EU Horizon 2020 project WINTHER and forerunner project INNODERM, can be used to non-invasively image suspect skin irregularities, as a first step to differentiating between cancerous or non-cancerous cells or determining the extent of the irregular vasculature of the area.

The talk, which was open to the public, took place at local Munich cafe and cultural venue, Gans Woanders, and was part of the three-day Pint of Science festival that happens in cities around the world on an annual basis.
