ImagingBioPro network workshop
Imaging joint-dynamics and degeneration from macro to molecular scale
The goal of this workshop is to bring together biomedical scientists, engineers, synchrotron specialists and clinicians to develop new, high energy imaging methods which capture the dynamic biochemical and biophysical processes in diarthroidal joints, and to develop ways to link these techniques to lab and clinic.
- 25/03/20192019-03-25 - 26/03/20192019-03-26
- Diamond Light Source
The workshop will include
- Invited talks
- Case studies applying synchrotron techniques to musculoskeletal degeneration
- Guided visits to some of the Diamond Light Source beamlines
- Facilitated workgroup discussions bringing what was learnt from the talks and tours into future project and grant development
Invited talks will be given by internationally leading experts spanning the full range from advanced synchrotron characterisation of biomaterials to translation of imaging techniques to the clinic.
- Prof. Peter Fratzl (Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam)
- Prof. Cathy Holt (Cardiff University and lead, OATechnetwork+)
- Prof. Peter Winlove (Exeter University)
- Prof. Richard Aspden (University of Aberdeen)
These talks will be complemented by exemplar talks by early-career researchers, demonstrating the latest techniques for analysing musculoskeletal tissue dynamics and degeneration using synchrotron and central facility techniques.
Tours will be followed by facilitated workshop discussions, to define project ideas and funding applications arising out of the talks and interactions.

Early Career Researcher - bursary opportunity
If you are an ECR (up to seven years post-award of PhD) and wish to apply for travel support from ImagingBioPro, please email email@example.com a short explanation (200 words) of how this workshop will help to guide your future research plans.
The ImagingbioPro team will evaluate your application and will contact you directly regarding the outcome.
Parking on Campus
Due to a large number of building works on site, parking on the Harwell Campus is extremely limited and visitors’ parking cannot be guaranteed. We strongly recommend travelling by public transport, where possible, if you are attending an event at Diamond.
