The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) announced today the election of 174 new members of the AIMBE College of Fellows in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in medical and biological engineering.
The Council of the Royal Microscopical Society announced today that COBA's Anne Carpenter was unanimously voted to receive an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Microscopy Society. Honorary Fellowships are bestowed by the Society for preeminence in microscopy and related branches of science.
According to their website, "the process through which the Society admits new Honorary Fellows is designed to reflect the prestigious nature of the Fellowship, and to ensure that only those candidates who have made the most outstanding contributions to microscopy or related branches of...
COBA's own Dr. Kevin Eliceiri has been named a 2021 Fellow of the Optical Society of America for outstanding research in cellular microenvironment imaging and bio-image informatics.
According to the OSA:
This distinction was awarded to 118 OSA members, from 24 countries, for their significant contributions to the advancement of optics and photonics through education, research, engineering, business leadership and service. The selection of these candidates was confirmed by the Board of Directors at its meeting in September 2020.
From Images to Knowledge with ImageJ & Friends (I2K) was originally scheduled for September 17-18, 2020 in Madison, WI. Due to travel restrictions, we are pleased to announce that our partners in the I2K series are holding an online version of the I2K meeting at HHMI Janelia this Nov 30-Dec 2, 2020.
This online version, similar to the past in person meetings, is open to all and will cover the vast ecosystem of open-source imaging software tools. We are excited by the online format of this newly announced I2K 2020 meeting and anticipate it will help shape the format of...
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News today featured COBA's Anne Carpenter and her group at the Broad Institute for their work launching a Cell Imaging Consortium. The consortium includes 12 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and received funding through the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) Bits to Bytes capital program.
In the feature, Carpenter describes the motivation behind the consortium and the image-set it will produce, how the partners were chosen, and how the project will measure success.
Today, Cell Press journal Patterns published a feature by COBA's own Dr. Anne Carpenter in their "People of Data" series discussing her transition from being a biologist to leading an entirely computational group. In the piece, Carpenter offers great insight for those who may be considering a similar career shift, or for those who just enjoy reading about bridging domain and data.
Summary from Patterns: "Why would a researcher move outside their comfort zone into a different field, from...
COBA's Anne Carpenter gave a keynote presentation at SciPy2020 on July 9, 2020. The keynote presentation, Open-Source Bioimage Analysis Software to Accelerate Drug Discovery, is available to view in full below and on YouTube.
