DOE's Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) has partnered with the National Institute of Health (NIH) National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) to sponsor a workshop designed to exchange information on tools needed by the biomedical research community at NIH and the technologic advances and applications developed at DOE's national laboratories. The joint NIBIB-DOE Workshop will focus on Optical Imaging and related X-ray Technologies. It will take place on February 10-11, 2004, at the Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, Maryland. Two days of information exchange will feature presentations on biomedical research needs and challenges by NIH researchers, overviews of new technologies at each of the participating national laboratories, poster presentations show-casing the most innovative optical/x-ray imaging technologies currently in development at the national laboratories, and a review of future funding opportunities in this field of biomedical imaging. Specific aims of this workshop include information exchange between national laboratory researchers and promotion of research collaborations between the NIH and DOE research communities.
