This special section is planned as a collection of selected papers presented at Saratov Fall Meeting 2021 – International Symposium on Optics and Biophotonics (September 28 – October 1, 2021, Saratov, Russia). Papers focused on optical and laser technologies for medicine and biology, morphology, precision mechanics and control of tissues and cells, related material and environmental problems, optical imaging, spectroscopy and molecular modeling are invited. We would dedicate this section to our friend and a member of J-BPE Editorial Board - Prof. Alexei N. Bashkatov, who is passed away on November 7, 2021 due to a sudden heart attack.

Prof. Bashkatov was graduated from the Department of Optics of Saratov State University in 1993, where he worked following thirty years in diligent teaching and solid research. Alexey Bashkatov is a co-author of 17 book chapters, 11 patents, and more than 350 scientific and conference papers, full text reports in the field of biophotonics. His investigations dedicated to diverse scientific fields including theoretical and experimental research in the optics of biological tissues, biological and medical physics, biophotonics, biomedical optics, and control of optical parameters of biological tissues, etc. He was renowned globally for his great scientific achievements. Prof. Bashkatov contributed as a Special Editor of several J-BPE issues and as a co-Editor of Special Sections related to Tissue Optics and Spectroscopy.
