    Bioimaging Thematic Club seminar series

    Many breakthroughs in Life Sciences have been intrinsically linked to advances in the acquisition and analysis of microscopic images. This is now more true than ever.

    The Bioimaging Thematic Club seminar series, jointly organized by members of FORTH and the University of Crete, aims to create an open and comprehensive forum for the exchange of knowledge, expertise, ideas, troubleshooting and all things related to bioimage acquisition and analysis in our community. The seminar series covers both light and electron microscopy approaches, as well as combinations thereof. Our goal is to embrace all aspects in the Bioimaging field, including custom-built and commercial microscopy modalities, open-source and commercial platforms for image analysis, and modern applications in biological, biomedical and clinical research.

    Seminars will be held in a hybrid format for in-person and remote participation via Zoom to accommodate both internal and external speakers and participants. Local members are highly encouraged to participate in-person to promote scientific and social interactions between our diverse communities of biologists, physicists, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, physicians and other disciplines.
