Purpose

The DOE and NIH support national centers and dedicated instruments for high-resolution bioimaging at national facilities. Capabilities include X-ray microscopy and tomography, 3D electron microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy, infrared imaging, light microscopy and live cell imaging, image analysis, dynamics, computing, software development, and data management. Recognizing that new directions in science are often inspired by new tools and methods as well as new biological concepts, the agencies also support the development of new bioimaging tools and methods at these centers and in the laboratories of independent researchers.

A joint NIH-DOE bioimaging working group has organized a dialog between the NIH- and DOE-supported research communities. They will host a public webinar series designed to (1) inform the biological research community about advanced bioimaging capabilities and how to access them and (2) describe associated data challenges.

The objectives of the webinars are to:

  1. Describe DOE and NIH bioimaging facilities and data management strategies
  2. Describe opportunities to promote movement of imaging technologies from non-biological fields into biomedical research applications
  3. Promote greater use of existing NIH and DOE supported bioimaging facilities

In parallel, the working group is soliciting information from the research community about unaddressed biological research needs for imaging through a Request for Information?.
