We are very pleased to announce this year’s event. It will take place in Rome, IT on March 13-14, and the topic will be – Visualization of Hidden Biological Processes. The previous symposium, the 1st International Symposium in cellular dynamics: from the nanoscale to the macroscale, was a great success. It was hosted by INEB and co-organized with IPATIMUP and IBMC,
Who is the Symposium for? The Symposium is for scientists who have an interest in the application of bioimaging, especially in the field of biomaterials, regenerative medicine and nanomedicine.
More Details about the 2nd International Symposium
How long will it last? Two days. It will follow a hands-on workshop on Regenerative Medicine (held on March 12). This year the environment for the lectures will be informal. In order to advance the knowledge in the field of Bioimaging applied to Biomaterials and Regeneration through integrative approaches, we encourage participants to bring relevant questions.

Would you like to advance your studies in medical field and in Engineering?
If you have a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical, chemical, electronical or mechanical engineering or applied science then the Biomedical Engineering Master's programme might be very interesting for you! Please read more about the selection criteria
Would a broad spectrum Master's Course be for you?
Among others the following course elements will be discussed in the first two semesters of the study: Anatomy and Histology, Biochemistry, Methodical Design, Tissue Engineering, Biomechanics, Biomaterials etc etc. Please read more about the programme in the first two semesters
There are many Universities in Europe where you can study.
In this master's course you can switch up to three times between different countries and cities. The first three semesters you can follow in Aachen (Germany), Dublin (Ireland), Ghent (Belgium), Groningen (The Netherlands) and Prague (Czech Republic). The fourth semester there are even 7 more universities you can go to! Please read more about the specializations of the universities
