National User Committee
The NUC is composed of users of our facilities who do not belong to the France BioImaging perimeter. It gives completely independent recommendations and suggestions on the user-related activities of FBI.
External users representatives:
- Bordeaux Node:
- Dirk Schaumlöffel (Institut des Sciences Analytiques et de Physico-Chimie pour l’Environnement et les Matériaux (IPREM) UMR 5254 / LCABIE, Université de Pau)
- Harald Wodrich (Laboratoire de Microbiologie Fondamentale et Pathogénicité UMR-CNRS 5234, Inserm, Bordeaux)
- Ile de France Sud Node:
- Laure Crabbé (Université Paris-Saclay)
- Marseille Node:
- Emmanuelle Renard (Institut Méditerranéen de Biodiversité et d’Ecologie marine et continentale, IMBE UMR 7263, Marseille)
- Lionel Berthaux (UMR 7256 Information Génomique et Structurale, Marseille)
- Jenifer Croce (Observatoire de Villefranche-sur-Mer)
- Montpellier Node:
- Silvia Zorrilla (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC, Madrid)
- Jean-Yves Bouet (Centre de Biologie Intégrative de Toulouse)
- Paris-Centre Node:
- Jennifer Gommerman (University of Toronto)
- Guillaume Pidoux (Inserm/Paris-Saclay/Chatenay Malabry)
- Sandra Piquet (UMR7216 CNRS Université Paris Diderot)
- Nicolas Chevalier (Matière et Systèmes Complexes, Université Paris Diderot)
- Guillaume van Niel (Centre de Psychiatrie et Neurosciences, U-894 INSERM)
The NUC allows FBI to keep in contact with the overall national community involved in the development of imaging instruments and methods in R&D labs and core facilities. NUC stands several times a year, in order to consider and include user recommendations and suggestions in the overall improvement of the infrastructure.
The IC is composed of local representatives of companies involved in field of microscopy, from start-ups to big conglomerates.
President: Philippe Rideau (Nikon)
Vice-President: Martin Belle (CryoCapCell)
The IC gives recommendations and suggestions on the direction of industrial partnerships initiated by FBI. It is also actively involved in the implementation of FBI’s integrated training offer, as members of the IC have noticed the need to gather and coordinate efforts to provide the best training, from fundamental knowledge to practical skills, in order to create a virtous circle that benefit the whole community.
The IC follows rules of procedure defining its organization.
National “Tech Watch” Committee
The National Tech Watch committee is composed of representatives of the technological networks and research groups (GDR) in our field. It allows for the coordination of the communities specialized in biological imaging technologies and methodologies. FBI has signed partnerships conventions with the RCCM and RTmfm networks, in accordance with CNRS’ interdisciplinarity mission. Together, these networks gather the whole of the community of biological imaging core facilities beyond FBI’s perimeter. FBI systematically participates in those communities’ activities, may they be annual gatherings (“Assises annuelles des plateformes du RTmfm”, “Les journées de formation du RCCM”) or more punctual and targeted events (Axes Metrologie, 3T, Cryo-EM, etc.).
These networks (and others) branch out into regional and local scales. FBI’s dissemination and animation activities are also inscribed in such local contexts (PhysChemCell, Light Sheet Microscopy, Storage Day in collaboration with IFB, chemical cell imaging, RIC Paris-Saclay, etc.)
Our activities spread out beyond borders, through the organization or co-organization of numerous schools, conferences, symposiums or workshops (MiFoBio; Les Houches School 2018 “Fluorescence markers for advanced microscopy-From photophysics to biology”; Focus on Microscopy Bordeaux 2017; Quantitative BioImaging 2019 Rennes; Global BioImaging Exchange of Experience II 2017 in Bangalore; GBI EoE III and training workshops in Sydney, 2018; etc.).
The FBI node community is composed of all the Core-facility and R&D staff. They are at the heart of the France BioImaging activities, and as such, are a pivotal source of information to shape FBI’s strategies.
Coordinator : Lydia Danglot
The Node Community is composed of all the FBI platform head of staff.
The Node Community runs the daily activities of the core-facility and R&D platforms.
President: Enrico Gratton (Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Physics, University of California, Spectroscopy / Biological Imaging)
- Luis Bagatolli (Professor, University of Southern Denmark)
- Teng-Leong Chew (Director for the Advanced Imaging Center, Janelia-Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Light Microscopy)
- Francesco Pavone (Professor, University of Florence, Biophotonics Microscopy / Neurology)
- Carolina Wählby (Uppsala University, Quantitative Microscopy)
- Yannick Schwab (Head of Electron Microscopy Core Facility, EMBL)
- Markus Sauer (Chair of Biotechnology & Biophysics Biocenter, University of Würzburg)
The SAB gives recommendations and suggestions on the scientific perimeter and technological developments carried out by FBI, but also on the efficiency and pertinence of both service and technological transfer from R&D teams to the Imaging Core Facilities open to users.
The SAB examines the results and projects of the infrastructure every 2 years, evaluates progresses, strengths and weaknesses, and proposes new avenues of service opening and offer, scientific investigation and technological development.

The Institutional Committee takes responsibility of decisions concerning major changes in orientation, composition, evolution and sustainability of the national infrastructure FBI.
It is also convened in case of major conflicts between members of the Executive Board.
For all the above reasons, the national coordinator informs the main supervising institution of FBI, the CNRS. Then, the CNRS notifies the other Parties and organizes debates and meetings. Final, the Institutional Committees takes decision, if necessary.
