ANNOUNCEMENTS

Frontiers of Science seminar

Apr 4, 2023, at 12-13
Presidentti Auditorium, BioCity, Turku

In April, the Frontiers of Science (FoS) BioCity Turku seminar will be given by Professor Ricardo Henriques, Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Portugal “Open Super-Resolution and AI technologies in the quest for nanoscale live-cell imaging”. Host: Associate Professor Guillaume Jaquemet . This FoS seminar will be Field of View’s contribution to the FoS spring series in 2024.

TAILORED IMAGE DATA SOLUTIONS COURSE 

Dec 2023

The course is aimed at researchers within the Field of View Research Program, who seek tailored guidance and assistance in analysing and managing their image data. The course encompasses free-of-charge sessions with image data specialists from Turku BioImaging, who will provide for instance consultation, image data testing and quality assessment, suggestions for data management and analysis, assistance in open sharing of data, and if needed even complete in-house image data analysis of selected data samples. Accepted projects will take place during the first half of 2024, as agreed in each case. For  more information, contact image-data@bioimaging.fi

Field of view guest seminar

Nov 28, 2023, at 13:30-15:00
Osmo Järvi Hall, Medisiina C, Kiinamyllynkatu 10, Turku

Field of View and the International MSc Programme in Biomedical Imaging (BIMA) invited Professor Ludovic Galas from the University of Rouen, PRIMACEN, France to give a talk while he was visiting Erasmus partners at UTU & ÅAU. Hosted by Associate Professor Diana Toivola, Professor Galas presented a lecture “Tunneling NanoTubes (TNTs): emerging, side or main route for cell-to-cell communication?”, which was very well received and sparked many questions and a lively conversation among the audience. Professor Galas’s visit strengthened the international collaboration between universities, providing future exchange and research opportunities to our imaging master’s students and researchers. 

Frontiers of Science seminar

Oct 26, 2023, at 12-13
Presidentti Auditorium, BioCity, Turku

In October, the Frontiers of Science (FoS) BioCity Turku seminar was given by Professor Alpha Yap from the University of Queensland, Australia. The host, Associate Professor Guillaume Jacquemet, introduced Professor Alpha Yap, who then gave a fantastic talk about adherens junctions tissue mechanics and epithelial homeostasis. This FoS seminar was Field of View’s contribution to the FoS autumn series in 2023.

FIELD OF VIEW EVENT “TURKU IMAGING DAY”

Oct 3, 2023
Osmo Järvi Hall, Medisiina C, Kiinamyllynkatu 10, Turku

Field of View research program together with TBI organized the first Turku Imaging Day to strengthen and grow the imaging community in Turku. The Turku Imaging Day took place during the celebrations of the 80th anniversary of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Turku. Turku Imaging Day brought together more than 150 researchers and students interested in imaging, including university leadership, and received very positive feedback. The event consisted of excellent scientific talks about imaging, presentations from local imaging facilities, and flash talks and posters from early career researchers. The event also had company sponsors, and Euro-BioImaging was also a central sponsor and collaborator for the event. At the end of the day, there was an evening networking event during which the winners of flash talk and poster competitions were announced. We are planning to have this event annually.

The program and information about the event can be found at the event page. The news about the first Turku Imaging Day is here.

FIELD OF VIEW WORKSHOP “FROM IMAGE ACQUISITION TO ANALYSIS AND DATA STORAGE”

Mar 29, 2023 at 14:10 — 16:10
BioCity, Biologi Auditorium

Field of View organized a new type of workshop, together with TBI, Cell Imaging and Cytometry Core from Turku Bioscience, Medisiina Imaging Centre, Turku Screening Unit, and Laboratory of Industrial Physics. The workshop covered the entire imaging workflow from acquisition to analysis, focusing on available services and good practices. The event received a lot of positive feedback and was noticed also outside Turku as something important and worth doing more and more in the future. We plan to do the workshop again next year.

“IN THE SPOTLIGHT” grantees 2022

Field of View research program aims to promote public understanding and appreciation of science and thus, opened a grant call “In the spotlight” for science communications projects in 1.11.—2.12.2022.

The committee has now evaluated all the proposals and decided to award “In the spotlight” grant to five different projects that are aimed at highlighting ongoing research projects and raising public awareness of outstanding research teams.“In the spotlight” grantees are:

·     Mira Minkkinen, BSc; Faculty of Science and Engineering, Åbo Akademi University
·     Riku Klén, PhD, Assistant professor, Turku PET Centre, University of Turku
·     Francisco M. Acosta, PhD; Turku PET Centre, Turku University Hospital, University of Turku
·     Marie-Catherine Laisne, PhD student; Cell biologi, Åbo Akademi University
·     Laura Ekblad, MD, PhD; Turku PET Centre, Turku University Hospital, University of Turku

The grantees will have their science communications project produced by Multimedia producer Henok Karvonen from Life Science Pixel Lab during the spring 2023. We congratulate all the grantees and look forward to see the produced material next year!
