BioImaging-GR is a national Research Infrastructure (RI), envisaged to provide state-of-the-art biological imaging tools and resources to the Greek biomedical community. BioImaging addresses issues of maximum interest not only for the scientific community but also for the society in general, mainly due to its momentous applications in Medicine (Molecular Medicine, Gene therapy, Drug and disease monitoring, among others). The pervasive importance of BioImaging is broadly appreciated and exemplified in the enthusiastic and robust support of Euro-BioImaging (, one of ESFRI’s pan-European research infrastructures (RIs), by the European Biomedical community. BioImaging-GR is a national initiative with the aim of establishing a state of the art Biological Imaging infrastructure in Greece that will serve the Biomedical Research community in Greece and neighbouring countries.
