The International Society for Clinical Spectroscopy (CLIRSPEC) is a non-profit organisation, constituted in 2015. The Society exists to act as a platform for those individuals, teams and organisations wishing to promote the translation of spectroscopy into the clinical environment, for the general benefit of patients; for example, to improve patient diagnosis and prognosis.

Recent publications by our members

The CLIRSPEC Network (a forerunner of the Society) recently published a review article Clinical Applications of Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy: State of Play and Future Challenges in Analyst
