We are happy to finally announce the date of our next FBI Annual Meeting that will take place in Strasbourg.

Save the date! France-BioImaging will reunite together at the Alsace node on November 20 and 21, 2024!

This year’s edition will focus on “Live functional imaging: From chemical synthesis of the probes to instrumentation“.

Program and registration are coming soon.

Explore the beauty of the invisible world through the 2024 FBI digital calendar!

Enjoy the diversity of microscopy techniques, models and applications represented, one image at a time. All 12 images used for this calendar were submitted to France-BioImaging Image Contest 2023.

A big thank you again to all the participants!

On December 13th and 14th 2023, we have the pleasure to invite you to our Annual Meeting, to be hosted by our brand new FBI Toulouse Node at the Centre de Biologie Intégrative of the Université Toulouse 3 – Paul Sabatier.

We will be happy to celebrate yet another year of achievements and developments in bioimaging with all the members of the community.

This year, the Annual Meeting will focus on “Multiscale mechanobiology of cells and cell systems“, a topic specially selected for being one of Toulouse node’s expertise.

Mechanobiology aims to apply biophysical approaches to measure and perturb forces in complex physiological systems, and to develop in vitro systems including different types of organoids, enabling the controlled manipulation of cells and tissues and the measurement of mechanical forces to study cell mechanics and morphogenesis. 

This “mechanobiology” theme is including (i) how cells generate and transmit forces, (ii) the impact of forces on cell/tissue dynamics, (iii) the impact of extrinsic forces on cells and tissues, and (iv) the development of new tools for manipulating and measuring forces in cells and tissues in a controlled, non-invasive way.

We invite the France-BioImaging Community to present their mechanobiology-related projects during the second day of the Annual Meeting around a dedicated session with selected talks. We strongly encourage you to submit an abstract for a talk or a poster presentation during your registration!

The winner of the best talk and the best poster presentation will win their registration fees for one 2024 microscopy related event of their choice!

Core facilities will also have an opportunity to present a poster.

We look forward to meeting you there!

Going to Rendez-Vous Carnot 2023? Drop by our booth U10 and say hello! 18 & 19 October – Lyon

In a few days, we will be travelling to Lyon for the Rendez-Vous Carnot 2023! This is the fifth time that we will attend the forum as an exhibitor, in the Research Infrastructures Village. We are going to present France-BioImaging R&D ecosystem and the multiple advanced biological imaging technology developments taking place on FBI imaging platforms and R&D teams.

If you are in Lyon between October 18 and October 19 attending the Rendez-Vous Carnot as well, be sure to drop by our booth U10 (at the Research Infrastructure Village) and meet some of our colleagues at the venue:

  • Caroline Thiriet , France-BioImaging External Affairs Manager
  • Etienne Henry, France-BioImaging R&D and Tech-Transfer mission Officer
  • Alban Belloir, France-BioImaging Communication Officer

We will be happy to discuss with you!

GRenoble OliGomérisation GROG will cover the latest innovations
in imaging techniques and analysis methods to quantify oligomerization and
clusterization in live cells.
The meeting will mostly deal about Single molecule localization microscopy and Fluorescence fluctuation methods and will be concluded with a round table.
