CITER Imaging Workshop


This full-day, interdisciplinary Cardiff University workshop is being organised by CITER (Cardiff Institute for Tissue Engineering and Repair) to showcase the world-class research facilities and projects at Cardiff University involved with the imaging of cells, tissues and humans. Talks will include colleagues from each research facility illustrated with examples of the research that has been carried out within each.

There will also be a competition on the day for the best research image, with a £100 prize. Please contact to let us know you are entering. Please email your image as an A3 poster (colour or B/W) which CITER will print on your behalf and include a brief overview of the image, instrumentation used and date acquired. Entrants will be judged on the scientific challenge and aesthetic appeal (judged by workshop delegates on the day).

Entry is open to CITER members (academics, MSc students, PhD students, Post-doctorate / research associates), but not imaging facility managers.

Non-members please contact to register your place, please note there is £30 fee.
