The Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) is participating in the Open Government Week 2022.
Three CNIC researchers, Gonzalo Pizarro, Manuel Desco and Valeria Caiolfa, will give informative scientific talks within the framework of the Distributed Biomedical Imaging Network (ReDIB), which is part of the Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) of the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
The CNIC is part of REDIB with the Advanced Translational Imaging Infrastructure (TRIMA) which has the following units:
- Molecular and Functional Imaging Unit: optical and fluorescence microscopy services.
- Advanced Imaging Unit: MRI, CT, PET, MRI/PET, ultrasound and optical imaging (fluorescence and luminescence 2D/3D).
- Nanotechnology, organic chemistry and radiochemistry laboratory. Preclinical and clinical fields. High Performance Imaging Unit: flow cytometry, High Content Screening.
Open Government Week is a worldwide initiative promoted by the Open Government Partnership (Open Gov Week), which in 2022 will be held from 27 June to 1 July 2022. Its main objective is to bring public administrations closer to citizens, based on the principles of Open Government: transparency, accountability, citizen participation, public integrity and collaboration.
During the seminar, attendees will learn about the capabilities and infrastructures available for their application in medical imaging research.
Dr. Pizarro will give a lecture on "The unique technical scientific infrastructure Distributed Biomedical Imaging Network (ReDIB); Dr. Desco on "Medical imaging: a pillar for personalised medicine and drug development", while Dr. Caiolfa's lecture will be on "Advanced optical microscopy: the light of biomedical research".
The event will take place in the auditorium of the CNIC and can also be attended online https://www.cnic.es/es/actualidad/agenda/semana-administracion-abierta-cnic to facilitate attendance as the event coincides with the NATO summit in Madrid, which will involve the implementation of a major security device in the city.
