November 23 to 24, LMU-China Academic Network Virtual Forum 2020 was held online. Institute of Photomedicine of Tongji University School of Medicine (Photomedicine team of Dermatology Hospital affiliated to Tongji University) and Laser Institute of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München jointly held a special session on Photodynamics and Photomedicine. The team of Prof. WANG Xiuli, director of TUSM Institute of Photomedicine, and the team of Prof. SROKA, director of Laser Institute of University of Munich, had a lively exchange and discussion on the latest research results of their respective teams around the topics of photodynamic therapy and photomedicine diagnosis.
LMU-China Academic Network includes University of Munich, Tongji University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Renmin University of China, Nanjing University, Zhejiang University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Sun Yat-sen University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Prof. WANG Xiuli and Prof. SROKA
Prof. WANG Xiuli and Prof. SROKA co-hosted this session. Prof. WANG first introduced the photomedicine team structure, six research directions including photodynamics, skin tumors, acne, photoaging, scars, photomedicine non-invasive diagnosis and breakthrough progress.
Reporters from Prof. Wang’s team
Subsequently, Dr. SHI Lei, Dr. HUANG Jianhua, doctoral candidate Li Chunxiao, Cao Zhi, and Liu Jia from Prof. Wang’s team reported on research progresses in recent years, including Antibacterial photodynamic therapy for treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection in diabetic mice, 5% ALA-PDT slightly inhibiting scalp sebum secretion and other frontier content of photodynamics. At the same time, a new technology of clinical application of skin CT (laser confocal microscope, RCM) used in non-invasive auxiliary diagnosis of breast paget's disease was introduced and a case of photodynamic therapy for atrophic lichen sclerosis of the vulva was shared.
Both teams of Prof. Wang and Prof.SROKA have a friendly cooperative relationship for more than 10 years. They have close cooperation in the fields of postgraduate developing and optical medicine research. They have jointly developed a number of doctoral students and jointly published 6 SCI papers. This event created an efficient communication platform for Sino-German optical medical research. Both teams will expand the scope and depth of cooperation, and jointly promote progress and development of optical medicine.
