We are very pleased to announce a series of symposia in Applied Bioimaging, hosted by INEB and co-organized with IPATIMUP and IBMC. The 1st edition of the Symposium will take place in September 20-21, under the topic - Bridging Development and Application.
The course was designed for those who have an interest in the application of bioimaging, especially in the field of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
The symposia will have the duration of two days, preceded by a hands-on workshop on bioimaging (held on September 19). Lectures will take place in a very informal environment, and participants will be encouraged to bring questions that may contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of Bioimaging applied to Biomaterials and Regeneration through integrative approaches. For this year event we will have as invited speakers:
Aart van Apeldorn, University of Twente, The Netherlands
Dennis Wirtz, John Hopkins University, USA
Reinhold Erben, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Austria
Robert F. Murphy, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
Boudewijn Lelieveldt, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands
Daniel Sage, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland
Cristina Lo Celso, Imperial College London, UK
Pj Chana, Biomedical Research Centre, Guy's Hospital, UK
The European Science Foundation in the framework of the project REMEDIC will fund 8 Travel Awards (500 €) on a competitive basis to assist graduate students and post-docs to present their work at the symposium.
Abstract submission deadline: July 8
Notification of Acceptance: July 31
Early bird registration deadline: August 15
