Danish BioImaging Scientific Symposium 

Thank you to the more than 150 participants who attended the 7th Danish Bioimaging Scientific Symposium!
It was a great pleasure to welcome you all to this event, which was filled with a very tight program of talks, workshops, poster session and a booth area. We also hosted parallel sessions including the Panel of Facilities lunch meeting and the Alexandra Instituttet Stakeholder meeting on the use of AI in image analysis. We hope you were inspired by the speakers, met new collaborators, and shared your questions and expertise with the community.
We were also honored with the participation of Mads Rugaard Christensen, from the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, Hans Bräuner, vice Dean for Research at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH, and Euro-BioImaging General Director John Eriksson.

Thank you! The Danish BioImaging Meeting in Odense was a great success

Many members of the Danish Bioimaging community joined our first DBI-INFRA meeting in Odense, where participants from the core facilities around Denmark and representatives from manufacturing companies and Euro BioImaging meet to shape the vision and future development strategy of DBI-INFRA. A great event with interesting technology development talks, work group discussions and poster session displaying who is who within DBI. Thank you all for communicating your needs, visions and hopes for the national infrastructure for the next years. Check out the photo gallery of this meeting, and have a look at some of the presentations of the DBI-INFRA core facilities, what services they offer and the high expertise of their staff.

The physical Danish BioImaging Meeting 2021 will be on October the 27-28th

At long last we are able to meet each other in person again and network.

The next physical Danish BioImaging Meeting will take place at the Technical University of Denmark in October 2021.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!

Danish BioImaging Virtual Meeting 2021 is on!

We look forward to seeing you all on 19-20 May for an exciting meeting with talks from top international speakers, poster sessions and network on the platform Gather.town

We hope to see many of you there.
