LMCB - Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology


UCL Bioimage Interest Group

The UCL BIIG - BioImage Interest Group - is a UCL Imaging Science Technology Platform initiative to bring together user groups run by the LMCB, Division of BiosciencesIPLS, UCL Cancer Domain and Sainsbury Wellcome Centre. The new Interest Group aims to connect users and experts from different backgrounds who are interested in biological and biomedical image acquisition and analysis. UCL BIIG aims to share knowledge, expertise and foster discussion and collaborations around the topics of bioimaging and bioimage analysis in an informal setting.
We hold monthly hybrid meetings at the LMCB seminar room and on Zoom every second Friday of the month with talks at 12-1 pm, followed by refreshments. We host two speakers for short (15 min) and informal presentations each time, allowing plenty of time for discussion. We welcome work-in-progress presentations and highly encourage the participation of early-career researchers.

Where: LMCB Seminar Room (LMCB Building, 2nd floor. From the stairs, follow the long corridor and look for a large room on your right)
