How To Take Part in German BioImaging
German BioImaging warmly invites all German microscopists to participate in the network. The first step is for individual imaging core facilities and research groups to register and create their own GerBI sub-page via our interface. By doing so, your research group or facility will be included on the List of Facilities and Research Groups and marked on the "Map of German imaging core facilities and research groups". In order to contribute please request an account and log in. If you require further help or assistance, don't hesitate to contact us. Anonymous editing of the wiki is disabled to prevent spamming.
German BioImaging also provides a mailing list which facilitates contact between members of the German BioImaging network. In order to prevent spam, emails are only distributed from email-addresses subscribed to the mailing list. Please subscribe to keep informed about new developments relevant to the German BioImaging community and future opportunities or events.
- [2018-3-16] German BioImaging-Gesellschaft für Mikroskopie und Bildanalyse e.V. (GerBI-GMB), the successor organisation of the German BioImaging network, has been granted funding by the .
- [2018-3-15] More than 200 scientists participated in the conference "Trends in Microscopy: Bridging the World" held on 12-15 March 2018 in Düsseldorf. TiM2018 ist the first biennial meeting of the newly founded German BioImaging-Gesellschaft für Mikroskopie und Bildanalyse.
- [2018-1-31] Registration is open to the GerBI-GMB Core Facility Management Course which will take place on 18-22 June 2018 in Konstanz-Island Reichenau.
- [2017-10-16] The article Advanced light microscopy core facilities: Balancing service, science and career is the most accessed article of the journal Microscopy Research and Technique. The "GerBI Best Practice Manual" summarizes the outcome of the German BioImaging workgroups during the first DFG-funding period. The German translation is also available: Gerätezentren für hochentwickelte Lichtmikroskopie: Service, Forschung, Karriere.
- [2017-10-3] German BioImaging microscopy centers throughout Germany participated in the "Maus Türöffner-Tag" on 3rd of October, and gave more than 200 children an insight into the world of the very small - the microcosmos.
- [2017-7-19] German BioImaging is happy to offer travel grants complementary to the short term scientific missions (STSMs) supported by the Network of European Bioimage Analysts (NEUBIAS). Scientists with an approved STSM, who want to extend their visit to learn more about and apply the imaging methods pertinent to their STSM project are highly welcome to inquire with German BioImaging for a travel allowance in the frame of our Job Shadowing initiative.
- [2016-1-15] A proposal for a distributed and coordinated national infrastructure offering open access to very advanced bioimaging technologies has been submitted to the Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF). With this document, the "German BioImaging-Research Infrastructure" seeks inclusion into the National Roadmap for Research Infrastructures. The GerBI-RI proposal is available from our restricted download area. The password to complete the download can be requested from the GerBI office via email.
