Working Groups

Community members working to grow African bioimaging


ABIC has launched three working groups focusing on distinct areas of importance for building capacity and awareness around bioimaging in Africa. These working groups consist of volunteer ABIC community members and the topics were selected by the community. The working groups meet online regularly to discuss and interrogate the challenges faced by the researchers and microscopists in Africa, and are working towards formulating strategies by which researchers, institutions, funding bodies, and policymakers can work together to address these needs.
