France BioImaging at Focus on Microscopy 2017


This year, the Focus on Microscopy Conference took place in sunny Bordeaux, France, from April 9th to April 12th. France BioImaging participated in two ways: with a booth in the exposition hall, and through a symposium co-organized with Euro BioImaging, held on Wednesday 12th.

The France BioImaging Booth
Many curious attendees stopped by our booth to enquire about our activities. In particular, foreign visitors were curious to know how the infrastructure was organized, as they expressed the intention to set up similar services in their own countries. Industrials were equally intrigued by our organization, and expressed the desire to work with us towards the dissemination of their new available technologies.

Volunteers from the Bordeaux Node gracefully assisted the coordination team in setting up & animating our booth.

Symposium on Training

FBI Symposium Training 2017With more than 40 attendees, the Symposium on Training (Wednesday 12 April) was a great success. The public and speakers shared fruitful ideas about the past, present and future of biological imaging training at the European level.

We would like to thank the Focus on Microscopy organizers for their work in ensuring the success of the conference.
