We are pleased to announce that project “NEBI – National Imaging Centre for biological and biomedical sciences” coordinated by the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology is among five projects on the Road Map in the category: “Efficient healthcare and increasing the effectiveness of health promoting activities”. NEuro-BioImaging Poland is a platform for integrating the Polish biomedical imaging community, developing and applying imaging techniques as one of their core research methods. The Nencki Institute as a legal partner in the Euro-BioImaging Project: http://www.eurobioimaging.eu, whose goal is to establish a pan-European research infrastructure in this area, is representing the Polish imaging community in the preparatory phase funded by the European Commission within the scope of an FP7 Capacities programme.
On May 30, 2011, the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology is organising the first national meeting for which we invited NEBI partners and associated partners as well as representatives of any scientific institutions interested and actively pursuing the topics of biological and medical imaging. The leading lecture will be given by dr. Jan Ellenberg, Euro-BioImaging project coordinator and group leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), one of the world-leading cell biologists (http://www.embl.de/ExternalInfo/ellenberg/homepage/index.html).
A detailed programme of this one day meeting will be published soon.
