Euro-BioImaging User Forum on Image Data

We look forward to the next Euro-BioImaging User Forum – this time on the topic of IMAGE DATA. The User Forum will take place on March 26th, 2-5 pm CET. This is a great opportunity to highlight the innovative image analysis and image data management solutions developed by you all at the Euro-BioImaging Nodes and supporting Euro-BioImaging Users!

A selection will be made among the submitted abstracts for joint presentations from Users and Nodes that should cover both scientific aspects of the research project as well as the technical aspects of the work. While presentations from Euro-BioImaging users are encouraged, other users of Euro-BioImaging Node facilities are also invited to submit their abstracts. So please consider if you have an interesting story from your users to share.

Time: 2-5 pm CET, March 26, 2024
Registration deadline: January 31, 2024

Microscopy: improve your imaging skills – from sample preparation to image analysis

We would like to highlight that there are a few spots still available in this imaging course given by the Live Cell Imaging (LCI) core facility at Karolinska Institutet Jan 29th – Feb 17th. The purpose of the course is to provide PhD students, researchers and core facility staff who have some prior experience of microscopy with enough theoretical and practical knowledge about their OWN sample and their OWN microscope, to enable them to:

1) assess and improve their sample so that it becomes suitable for data extraction from fluorescence images,

2) make best use of the hardware available in their lab/facility,

3) fully understand the acquisition parameters they need to set in their own microscope software,

4) design their experiment from scientific question to image analysis using a strong knowledge base.

To see how the course can help your microscopy project, check the course webpage. Look at the course schedule 2024 and the alumni testimonies! Also check the course syllabus to see the eligibility criteria. Also read what you will learn in the Course content and Intended Learning Outcomes sections. If you cannot apply to the course, you can anyway follow any of the lectures (in blue on the schedule) as they will be publicly broadcasted live on Zoom and accessible to anyone without registration. The schedule and zoom link are available on the course page. The course is free of charge.
