We introduce the feature issue on the Optics in the Life Sciences Congress held on April 2-5, 2017 in San Diego, CA. The Congress consisted of 5 topical symposia: (i) Bio-optics Design and Application; (ii) Novel Techniques in Microscopy; (iii) Optical Molecular Probes, Imaging and Drug Delivery; (iv) Optical Trapping Applications; and (v) Optics and the Brain. These separate symposia also held joint sessions of common interest. The following highlights some of the topics from the Congress.


(090.0090) Holography; (110.4500) Optical coherence tomography; (170.0170) Medical optics and biotechnology; (180.0180) Microscopy; (300.0300) Spectroscopy
