At our Nov 09 meeting in London BioImaging, we defined a series of Workings Groups to define policies and strategies across the biological imaging in the UK.

Working Groups are self-selected committees that are working to define strategies and directions across the domain of biological imaging in the UK sciences. Our interests covers all modes of microscopy and in vivo used in life sciences research and biomedical imaging used in research and in clinical diagnosis and treatment.

Working Groups are considering issues in biological imaging infrastructure and in scientific themes.

Dec 2010 UPDATE: A ‎summary of these docs has been sent to the heads of all major UK funding agencies, inviting them to comment and engage in discussing next steps for supporting BioImagingUK. Further info to follow.
