The Bioimaging Centre for Biomaterials and Regenerative Therapies (b.IMAGE) is part of the Instituto de Engenharia Biomédica (INEB), a center with a wide experience and international recognition in the biomaterials and biomedical imaging fields. The aim of the b.IMAGE is to advance in the development, improvement, integration and use of bioimaging solutions through research, technology development and education, in the fields of Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine. At our Center we provide high quality in vitro and in vivo imaging equipment for the biological, biomedical and bioengineering community, helping users from the experimental design and data acquisition to analysis. The b.IMAGE operates on the basis of core projects and programmes at the bioimaging/biomaterials and/or regeneration interface. The Centre is open to all academic researchers and industrial clients on a fee-for-service basis.

The b.IMAGE was created in 2010 following a successful application to structural funds within the framework of the ON2 program (2007-2013 North Regional Operational Program; SAIECT-IEC/2/2010). The Center daily activities are supported by our technical staff and its governance assured by the Scientific and Management Committee, composed by a panel of excellent researchers from the biomedical and bioengineering fields.

The b.IMAGE is a node of the PPBI-Portuguese Platform of BioImaging, an open-access research infrastructure integrated in the Roadmap of National Research Infrastructures of Strategic Relevance.

In our website you can find information about our projects, equipment, links to tutorials and protocols on different methodologies, booking and training, as well as fees.

In order to improve our service and to address as many as possible of your needs, we look forward to receive your input (b.image@ineb.up.pt).
