France BioImaging (FBI) is the French National Infrastructure in Biological Imaging. At the International level FBI is the “unique french node”, part of the EurobioImaging Infrastructure.
FBI is at the crossroads between molecular and cell biology, biophysics and engineering, mathematics and informatics.
This unique coordinated infrastructure gathers several large biological imaging facilities (11) and laboratories specializing in R&D for imaging in 5 local nodes (Paris centre; IdF south; Montpellier; Marseille; Bordeaux) and one transversal node for Image Processing and Data Management (IPDM).
France-BioImaging aims at creating the most efficient adoption of the latest advances in all technologies and methods related to microscopy, by the users of the imaging facilities. These technologies and methods, reinforced by a strong support in computational analysis, provide quantitative measures and integrative understanding of a wide range of cell and tissue activities in biological models, from the simplest, to small animals in normal and pathological situations.
