- Abstract text
Innovative imaging technologies have revolutionised the life sciences by allowing researchers to visualise and measure a broad spectrum of molecular and cellular processes and events with an accuracy and coverage that have been previously out of reach. Imaging technologies are thus a central technology platform driving research in most disciplines of the life sciences.
Euro-BioImaging’s role in the imaging revolution is to offer all scientists open access to imaging instruments, expertise, training opportunities, and data management services beyond what is available at their home institutions or among their collaborators.
The technologies offered by Euro-BioImaging can be accessed at Euro-BioImaging Nodes, which are internationally renowned imaging facilities distributed across Europe. They cover the whole spectrum of biological and biomedical imaging, with an ever-growing portfolio of cutting-edge instruments. New technologies are included continuously to offer access to the most innovative technologies on the market.
All scientists, regardless of affiliation, area of expertise, or field of activity, can benefit from Euro-BioImaging’s pan-European open access services. For most technologies, scientists are invited to receive hands-on training at the imaging instrument of their choice so that they can generate the desired data sets themselves and expand their technological knowledge. Visits can vary in length between single days to several weeks or months, depending on the project’s need and individual circumstances. Scientists interested in accessing Euro-BioImaging services simply submit a short description of their planned experiments via the online application portal. Senior scientists and Node staff will offer expert advice on the project’s scope and experimental set-up to ensure that the experiment has the best chance of success from the very first visit.
Euro-BioImaging also works with technology developers, both from academia as well as from industry, to highlight the latest developments in imaging technology, raise awareness for them and to proof their open access capabilities.
