The national research infrastructure for biological and medical imaging is built as a distributed infrastructure of leading imaging facilities in the Czech Republic. The infrastructure will assure open access to a wide range of imaging technologies and expertise to all scientists in the Czech Republic. The national imaging infrastructure is closely interlinked with the Czech Republic participation in the ESFRI large pan-European research infrastructure Euro-BioImaging. The backbone of the national infrastructure create two future Euro-BioImaging nodes (“Advanced Light and Electron Microscopy Multi Modal Multi Sited Node” composed of the Institute of Molecular Genetics Academy of Sciences, the Charles University, BioCeV , the Institute of Physiology of the Academy of Sciences and “Advanced Light Microscopy and Medical Imaging Multi Modal Multi Sited Node” composed of the Masaryk University Brno, CEITEC, the Institute of Experimental Botany and the Institute of Scientific Instruments of the Academy of Sciences). These institutions are complemented by the imaging facilities of the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences and Palacky University which possess unique imaging technologies and expertise in the context of the Czech Republic.
The national imaging infrastructure will provide Czech scientists with a permanent access to the cutting edge imaging technologies, which are not available in their own institutions. The infrastructure will support mutual cooperation of the scientists and sharing of best practices and knowledge, which contributes to the higher competitiveness of the Czech research. Special training programmes will help in increasing the qualification of scientists in biological and medical imaging, whose knowledge is a key pre-requisite for any research activity in biomedical sciences.
