WED 08-Jan-2020

Event closed! Some slides are available below

Following some exciting developments, the final workshop included a live demonstration of the GALAHAD PS-OCT imaging of a human retina. This necessitated a change of venue.

Coffee and lunch were provided and there were lengthy breaks to discuss the project with the GALAHAD researchers.
