Bordeaux Node

The Bordeaux Imaging Center has been busy. It is settling in a brand new building, it has concluded a partnership with the Cajal Advanced Neuroscience Training Program  to develop special imaging training for neuroscience, and is developing a new light sheet microscope to tackle the challenging task of super resolution imaging inside living samples.

Reminder: Project Funding through FBI Calls

Besides supporting the organization of scientific events and training in BioImaging, FBI proposed to fund projects from any users outside France-BioImaging, who would like to use the infrastructure. “Access” requests can be submitted electronically at any time. Another call is dedicated to “Technology & Methodology Transfer projects”, aimed at speeding up dissemination of new technologies and methods developed within the Infrastructure. Both are reviewed monthly by the Executive Board of France-BioImaging.
