About the Centre
Bioimaging is a rapidly advancing field of new technologies which underpins a significant proportion of bioscience research. The Durham Centre for Bioimaging Technology aims to become an International Centre of Excellence, whose strength and distinctiveness lies in drawing together technological developments such as instrumentation, chemical probes and visualisation; demonstrating the strength of applying these to real biological challenges. The centre is a truly multidiscipline “one-stop shop” for Bioimaging research, bringing together expertise from across Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computing sciences. Durham’s internationally recognised expertise in plant imaging has also enabled the centre to be unique in the focussed application of new imaging technologies to plants, in addition to animals, to address the challenge of food security.
