  • Event Type: Symposia

The Crick BioImage Analysis Symposium (CBIAS) aims to showcase image analysis techniques to biomedical researchers and to demonstrate how such approaches can help them advance their research.

Crick BioImage Analysis Symposium logo

The symposium will bring together life scientists and leading developers of bioimage analysis methods to illustrate how such approaches can answer defined biological questions.

The ability to routinely acquire large, multi-dimensional datasets with modern microscopy techniques is revolutionising biomedical research. In order to fully realise the benefits of such imaging technologies, automated analysis pipelines are needed, but many life scientists lack the necessary expertise to design and execute such analyses.

The key objectives of the symposium are:

  • Inform biomedical researchers of the possibilities that image analysis can deliver for their research
  • Establish links between life science researchers and image analysis experts
  • Foster the development of an image analysis network, with the Crick as its central hub

Registration is now open.

CBIAS Training Workshop

On Wednesday, November 22 and Thursday 23 we will be organising a day-long introductory napari (https://napari.org) workshop. The aims of the workshop will be:
•    to introduce image analysts to napari
•    help them perform some basic analysis tasks
•    get them started with implementing plugins

Please see below for workshop programme.
This workshop is now fully booked.
