Euro-BioImaging is organizing a fourth online User Forum on October 6, 2022 from 14:00-17:00 CEST. The topic is Fighting infectious diseases. This event will highlight the importance of cutting-edge imaging technologies in support of pandemic preparedness, finding treatments and understanding the underlying biology of infectious agents. We will showcase work done by users at various Nodes and explain the specific expertise available via Euro-BioImaging to support infectious disease research. We will also feature funding opportunities from the ISIDORe project.
