France-BioImaging satellite meeting at FEBS-EMBO August 30th, Paris

France-BioImaging satellite meeting at FEBS-EMBO August 30th, Paris

FBI Special Events

advanced microscopy meets biology at different scales


Saturday August 30th, 9h-12h – Palais des Congrès, Paris

Preliminary programRegistration until July 31st


France-BioImaging is the laureate, in the field of Biological Imaging, of a national initiative to support the access to innovative research to a wide scientific, medical and industrial community throughout France, Europe and beyond.


Full understanding of life processes relies on the development of new technologies enabling the multiscale observation and quantification of biological systems.


At the frontier between molecular and cell biology, biophysics and engineering, mathematics and bioinformatics, France-BioImaging gathers, in a coordinated infrastructure unique in France, several outstanding cellular imaging centers supported by laboratories for state-of the art R&D with the aim to give faster access to advanced imaging techniques and methods to a wide scientific community and to participate to socio-economical development through industrial partnerships and innovations.


This meeting is intended for the whole community of researchers (research fellows, engineers, PhD candidates, students) to illustrate how to answer diverse biological questions using innovative imaging solutions.


Admission is open to participants of the main FEBS EMBO conference but restricted to the first 120 registered persons. Please register here before July 31st (free of charge).
