NEBI - National Center for Advanced Analysis of Biological and Biomedical Imaging

The project aims to set up the National Center for Advanced Image Analysis in Biological and Biomedical Sciences—a sophisticated IT infrastructure for data collection and processing.

Project implementation will be possible through building three groups of distributed laboratories: the Laboratory of Biological and Biomedical Imaging with High Passage Technique, the Laboratory of Imaging of Structures and Functions of Cells and Tissues with High Passage Techniques, and the Laboratory of Modelling and Visualization of the Dynamics of Complex Biological Processes. These facilities will be dispersed between two locations: Poznan and Mikołajki. The latter will house a modern two-storey scientific and research infrastructure and finally, for the sake of the environment, two renewable energy installations will be built in Poznan and Kakolewo.

Together, this will create a state-of-the-art integrated platform for multidimensional imaging of biological processes that are crucial for appropriate functioning of the organism as well as underlying diseases of civilization.
