France-BioImaging aims at developing and promoting innovation in biological imaging and allowing access to a large community of scientists. Ten Imaging Core Facilities located in five Nodes of FBI provide many technologies for biological imaging, , which scientist can access (depending on the local facility rules and of your project). It includes a wide variety of imaging systems for advanced light and electron microscopy, but also available bio-probes, data storage facility and software for image analysis. Some core facilities can also propose premises and equipment in order to test new developments.
The use of high-end technological equipment and innovative methodologies requires training. France-BioImaging offers recurrent training on all sites. Moreover with its partners, FBI co-organizes the MiFoBio School and the FBI-Advanced Training every two years each.
This call for scientific projects is opened to any users outside France-BioImaging, who would like to use the infrastructure. Applications for access can be electronically submitted at any time. They are examined four times a year by the Executive Board of France-BioImaging. After acceptance, the user will have access to the facility of his choice or will be proposed to contact a more appropriate site. FBI will support the selected project (travel or journey expenses, bench fees…).
This call for Tech & Meth Transfer projects also opened to everyone, aims at speeding up dissemination and use of new technologies and approaches developed within the Infrastructure. Applications are examined four times a year by the Executive Board of France-BioImaging. Acquisition of equipment is not eligible. Financial support will be adapted, depending on the nature of the project and its duration, but will remain in the order of a few thousands €.
