Illustration of the Cross Talks podcast. It reads

Cross Talks is a podcast series by the UT Austin Portugal Program that will walk you through the wonders of science-business collaboration. Monthly, we will be exploring emerging topics in the areas of Advanced Computing, Medical Physics, Nanotechnologies and Space-Earth Interactions as we delve into the Program’s ground-breaking industry-driven research projects, selected through the 2019 Strategic Research Project Call.

In our sixth episode, we talked with Rosa Romero (CEO at Sphere Ultrafast Photonics) and Andrew Dunn (Director of the Center for Emerging Imaging Technologies at the University of Texas at Austin) about their project ExtreMED. Together, they explain how they can use lasers to innovate the microscopy market and observe live tissues with lowered photo-induced damage.

Presented by Bárbara Pinho and produced by Andreia Passos (UT Austin Portugal’s Executive Director) and Bárbara Pinho (UT Austin Portugal’s Communication Team – PT Office).
