At our three-day symposium scientists from the University of Münster and their international guests discussed the latest developments in research on inflammation and the imaging of the immune system in Münster. We enjoyed to meet in person and were particularly excited to take the opportunity, with this symposium, to come together in our University’s new Multiscale Imaging Centre. Working groups from medicine, the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science are based here, bringing together a wide range of expertise in biomedical imaging, as well as the corresponding technologies which we use to investigate the behaviour of cells in organisms. The modern auditorium and the light-flooded foyer, which is adorned by a twelve-meter-high artwork, offer a great atmosphere and serve as a central meeting point for our scientific community in the field of cell dynamics and imaging.

Our annual conference is jointly organised by several research networks from Münster. This year, the Collaborative Research Centre 1450 “inSight – Multiscale imaging of organ-specific inflammation” took the lead. Co-organisers: CRC 1009 “Breaking Barriers”, CRC 1348 “Dynamic Cellular Interfaces”, CRC/TRR 128 “Multiple Sclerosis”, CRU 342 “Organ Dysfunction During Systemic Inflammation”, Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre
