FB-III ("FB triple-I") : Flanders BioImaging: Integrating Imaging Infrastructure from cell to man. (Research)


Flanders Bioimaging (FBI) is an interuniversity consortium of advanced light microscopy and biomedical imaging core facilities set up to integrate, optimize and co-ordinate the available imaging infrastructure in Flanders. This infrastructure allows imaging from the molecular scale, via small and large animal models to human biomedical imaging, and the main aim is to provide seamless international research access via linking to the EuroBioImaging (EuBI) project, which achieved European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) status in 2019. This includes advising on study design, novel modes of access (e.g. sample shipping), the use of novel techniques, and user training in all aspects from data collection to analysis and interpretation. EuBI is also part of the European Science Cloud-Life (EOSC-Life) ESFRI cluster project (WP2), which aims to develop cloud-based computational tools and workflows for biomedical image data processing, and FBI also seeks to develop seamless workflows for data management for imaging core facilities in Flanders.
