NEUBIAS - Training School for Early Career Investigators

Oeiras, Portugal

Feb. 12 – 15th, 2017

  • Principles, techniques and ethics of digital image processing
  • Enhancement & processing of bioimages for analysis and publication
  • Building practical workflows with free GUI tools to analyse 2D, 3D & time-lapse bioimages
    (using trainees’ own images requiring eg. object segmentation and densitometry, spot detection & tracking or filament/tube tracing)
  • Introduction to workflow automation (record and reuse commands/pipelines)
    • NOTE – the focus of the ECI TS is on workflows with GUI tools, so it is not the ideal course for researchers who are already advanced into image analysis or are interested mostly in learning scripting or ij macro language! NeuBIAS will organize other Training Schools with that emphasis.
  • Extracting and validating quantitative numerical data from bioimages/data mining
  • Solve your own IA problem, create your workflows, explore different tools!

NEUBIAS - Training School for Bioimage Analysts

Oeiras, Portugal

Feb. 12-15, 2017

The aim of the course is at increasing the knowledge and the technical capability of bioimage analysts for improving their analysis quality. We expect that the participants are already fluent with at least one programming / scripting language and working on bioimage analysis in their daily life. Our plan is to ask developers of various image analysis tools to tell us how to access API of those tools, and to experience construction of workflows using available resources.

EMBO practical course on 3D Developmental Imaging

30 June – 08 July 2018 | IGC, Oeiras, Portugal


This 9-day practical course is great for young researchers working in developmental biology (grad students & post-docs or young PIs), who need to image in 3D morphogenetic processes in vivo (animals & plants). Applicants are required to submit a mini-project to carry out during the course, and are encouraged to bring their own samples; we provide a full wetlab with conditions to maintain YOUR embryos! Students can expect to learn how to image their embryos with confocal, two-photon, light-sheet and optical tomography (expected >10 different systems available! lectures also on x-ray micro-tomography and 3D EM), and also 3D image analysis & publication with free (ImageJ, Drishti and others) and commercial software (eg Huygens and Imaris).

The course has several excellent guest speakers and commercial partners, and is hosted by the Advanced Imaging facility at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencias in Oeiras, Portugal. It is a very intense, but also informal course where everyone is encouraged to work long hours, get own results, exchange knowledge, tips, tricks and know about best practices in 3D imaging.

We are looking for 16 highly motivated students to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The registration fee INCLUDES meals, course materials, hotel and local transport, all made possible by generous sponsorship from EMBO, the Gulbenkian Institute and our commercial partners. EMBO provides in addition a limited number of travel grants for candidates from Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey and Chile, India, Singapore and Taiwan.
