2nd Inflammation & Imaging Symposium + Opening of the Multiscale Imaging Centre

From 12-14 September 2022, renowned scientists from around the world will discuss the latest developments in research on inflammation and the imaging of the immune system in Münster. The symposium will be the inaugural scientific event in the new Multiscale Imaging Centre at the University of Münster. It is jointly organised by several research networks from the University of Münster. This year, our Collaborative Research Centre “inSight” takes the lead.

Inflammation & Imaging Lecture

On Mondays from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., we discuss the most recent advances and innovative research ideas with international colleagues and our community in Münster. Three research networks at the University of Münster – CRCs 1009 and 1450, as well as CRU 342 – have joined forces so that together, we can further develop our research strengths focusing on “dynamics and imaging of inflammation and infection”.

Network contributions to scientific conferences

Our members engage in international exchange and collaboration as speakers and organizers of a wide range of professional conferences. In doing so, they make an important contribution to advancing research, as many new ideas are born through such events. Our network supports conferences that address core aspects of our research field, e.g. by sponsoring sessions. This includes events in the fields of medicine, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer science, as well as interdisciplinary events.

Internal members meetings

The members of our Integrated Research Training Group discuss their projects with fellow PhD students and the thesis advisory committee in regular progress meetings. In spring & autumn classes and additional skills workshops, our junior researchers obtain further scientific input, train in using imaging techniques and acquire further qualifications for personal career progression. At annual retreats, all members of our network come together to exchange knowledge and develop ideas.
