2018 Imaging Workshop: Emerging Technologies at the CCI

We're happy to announce the tentative program for the 2018 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. The program will be two days, the first in symposium style and the second will have a choice of 'Hands-on' in the facility or a guided Image Analysis workshop.

You can download the poster for the event here.

We (and others) will be tweeting leading up to the event and in real time with the hashtag #CCIwkshp.

Date & Location

The imaging workshop will be held on the 10th and 11th September 2018. The main seminars will tentatively be held in the School of Life Sciences Lecture Theatres. The hands-on sessions will be held in the Life Sciences PC teaching room or CCI.
