Annual QBIN Scientific Day

Each year, QBIN organizes a Scientific Day during which bio-imaging researchers from across Quebec come together to showcase their work and form new collaborations. During the day, the results of projects funded by QBIN are presented and students who have received Training Abroad Scholarships summarize their experiences. Student members also have the opportunity to present their research through poster presentations and several poster prizes are awarded.

In addition to the presentations by QBIN members, two keynote lectures are given by the annual awardees of the William Feindel Lecture and the Rising Star in Bio-imaging in Quebec awards.
