Workshops on Imaging @ MBL

Workshops on Imaging @ MBL


Starting in the summer of 2013, a series of workshops are planned that explore the options and find the future vision for Imaging at the MBL. Members of all communities that use imaging at the MBL are invited to attend and each workshop will bring a spotlight to a different imaging facet at MBL. During the first workshop we highlighted the Cellular Dynamics Imaging Group (CDIG). The next workshop on October 10, 2013, focused on teaching microscopy. Future spotlights include the Central Microscopy Facility, planning a Collaboratory in Biological Imaging, synergies with UChicago, Argonne National Lab and Fermi Lab, and others. A common goal of all workshops is to foster communication between users, developers, vendors and manufacturers of cutting edge microscopy equipment and to identify successful ongoing activities and promising new initiatives that can be expanded into year-round pursuits at the MBL.
