ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
Janelia Research Campus is a pioneering research center in Ashburn, Virginia, where scientists pursue fundamental questions in neuroscience and imaging. The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) launched Janelia in 2006, establishing an intellectually distinctive environment for scientists to do creative, collaborative, hands-on work. Our integrated teams of biologists, computational scientists, and tool-builders pursue a small number of scientific questions with potential for transformative impact. We share our methods, results, and tools with the scientific community. It is a uniquely innovative and collaborative atmosphere that reflects HHMI’s reputation for excellence.
Integrative Imaging (I2) is a new, ambitious and multipronged platform for integrating Janelia’s robust and wide-ranging efforts in developing microscopy instrumentation, probes, image analysis and visualization into a seamless workflow. It is based on the successful model of the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC), and will provide Janelia scientists and collaborators access to cutting edge Janelia-built pre-commercial microscopes, as well as commercial systems. More importantly, I2 scientists will create highly integrated collaborations to design and implement complex, longer-term microscopy projects. This will augment Janelia’s Light Microscopy Shared Resource (LMSR) that provides microscope training and support. As the nexus and extension of the AIC and LMSR, I2 will co-innovate with Janelia scientists to (1) provide detailed technical consultations and experimental design, (2) develop novel biological sample preparations and labeling methodologies, (3) implement novel imaging workflows, and (4) offer in-depth image processing and analysis capabilities and guidance.
