SLAS 2019 Advanced 3D Human Models and High-Content Analysis Symposium - 21-22 October

Francis Crick Institute, London

 

There is increasing interest in the use of 3D systems in both discovery and applied research. But how appropriate or successful are the use of these systems in these areas and what still needs to be improved in order for such approaches to be more widely adopted? The SLAS 2019 Advanced 3D Human Models and High-Content Analysis Symposium focuses on four distinct, yet interrelated, aspects. You will hear from experts in their fields about current and near-future enabling technologies, applications of such systems in high-throughput screening, advances in imaging and analysis of data generated in these systems and the expansion into novel model systems. This symposium aims to include not just the current successes but also what the current limitations and opportunities are in this rapidly expanding field.

Benefits to attendees include:
•    Network with members of the global life sciences community
•    Compare and benchmark your operations against best practices
•    Learn about innovative technologies that will transform your practices
•    See examples of successful collaboration with external and internal partners
•    Grow professionally through presenting your work in a podium or poster presentation

Quantitative Methods for Bioimaging - 4th-5th July 2019

Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, South Kensington, London

 

Biomaging (imaging as applied to cellular biology) is a vital tool used across the life sciences for observing cellular structures and processes. It plays a major role in the understanding of diseases and infections and in the development of new drugs and treatments. Chemists, physicists, biophysicists and engineers are driving forward revolutionary advances in imaging and experimental techniques, allowing cellular processes and structures to be observed in unprecedented detail. The bioimaging community is producing vast quantities of data, creating an urgency for the quantitative methods needed to exploit them to their full potential and effectively draw inference upon the very biological mechanisms the technology has been developed to probe.

 

This workshop will feature invited and contributed talks exploring state of the art methods for the quantitative analysis of bioimaging data. 

Registration is now open and places are limited.

Full details, including a list of invited speakers, how to register and how to contribute to the programme can be found here

 

This event is funded in part by the Quantitative Sciences Research Institute.

BioImagingUK Meeting - 1st July 2019

 

This meeting will provide an opportunity for the UK Bioimaging community to discuss priorities and strategies in training, development, careers and ways to share knowledge across different disciplines. The session will consist of short talks from members of the BioImagingUK organising committee, BBSRC, and industrial/institute collaboration partners (Royce, RFI, Faraday) to update on progress, new opportunities and initiatives. There will be interactive Q+A sessions to encourage discussion and enable emerging priorities and ideas to be highlighted. The meeting is open to everyone with an interest in bioimaging.
