About ImageInLife

Understanding how cells behave to build organisms as complex as vertebrates is one of the biggest challenges of modern biology, currently addressed by a wealth of constantly improving techniques especially in the field of microscopic imaging. ImageInLife (www.ImageInLife.eu) is a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission Horizon2020 programme and focused on the training of European experts in multilevel bio-imaging, analysis and modelling of vertebrate development and disease. The network consists of participants from academia and the private sector who have joined forces to educate the next generation of imagers of the physiology and pathology of biological systems. These new ‘bio-imagers’ will be able to master the entire process of modern imaging technology, from instrumentation and image analysis to modelling. ImageInLife focuses on vertebrate embryos (zebrafish, mouse and rabbit) because recent technological advances now make it possible to gain a better understanding of the complex developmental processes of embryogenesis by imaging at a cellular or subcellular level. Moreover, the project applies recently established embryo-based disease models that provide new solutions for biomedical research and drug screening. The project will run for 4 years, starting 1 January 2017.

The ImageInLife network will employ 14 Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs/PhD students) in 6 European countries.The ESRs will be offered an interdisciplinary education programme that includes a PhD trajectory with training-through-research in individual projects, secondments at research groups of other network partners, and a variety of local and network-wide courses and workshops.
