2017 Imaging Workshop: Making the most of Microscopy

We're happy to announce the tentative program for the 2017 CCI Imaging Workshop. Our aim is to provide existing and potential users of the facility with a better idea of the services we offer, the work that is conducted here and some of the cutting edge science happening in the Imaging field.

We are pleased to have special guest Keynotes from Gary Borisy (Forsyth Institute) and Teng-Leong Chew from the HHMI Janelia Advanced Imaging Centre (AIC) who will also provide more in depth training on days two and three.

As with last year, we (and others) will be tweeting leading up to the event and in real time with the hashtag #CCIwkshp.

Date & Location

The imaging workshop was held on the 11th - 13th September 2017. The main seminars were held in the School of Life Sciences Lecture Theatre #2. The hands-on was held in the Life Sciences PC teaching room.


Day 1

Day 2 & 3

The director of the Advanced Imaging Centre at the HHMI Janelia Research Campus, Teng-Leong Chew gave a comprehensive hands-on training session on Image Analysis. The program covered:

Day 2

Day 3

Places are limited and will be charged at £50 per person (lunch is provided).


Registration is not yet open.

Registration for the 2017 Imaging Workshop is open until 4th September. There are a limited number of spaces and registration will be on a first-come first serve basis. Registration is free but required so that we can calculate catering and space requirements.

  • Marie Held (IIB): Clearing mouse tissue for light microscopy imaging
  • Luke Johnson (IGH): Developing 3D in vitro disease models of the small intestinal epithelium and intestinal DCs for Toxoplasma gondii infections
  • Fang Huang (IIB): Identification of a regulator essential for carboxysome formation in cyanobacteria

Congratulations to Fang Huang (Liu Group) who won the best short-talk prize, an iPad Mini!
