ELI-ALPS user keynote and Hungarian TV
by Jens Biegert
The first ELI-ALPS user workshop was held on 21-22 November in Szeged Hungary to disseminate and discuss scientific opportunities with the upcoming ultra brilliant light pulses and particle beams of ELI-ALPS. ICREA Professor at ICFO Jens Biegert, who is one of the authors of the whitebook which provides the foundation for ELI, was one of the plenary speakers discussing multidisciplinary opportunities of ELI-ALPS. Of specific focus were new pathways in oncological screening which could permit early detection of cancer on the cellular level.
Hungarian National television covered the event, interviewing the directors of ELI, the director of the Wigner Biological Research Center, the head of Oncology at Szeged Faculty of Medicine, and ICFO Professor Jens Biegert.
