Infectious diseases are caused by organisms, usually microscopic in size, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites that are passed from one person to another. They are a leading cause of death worldwide. To help reduce worldwide mortality, in context of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, the European training network IMAGE-IN aims to educate a new generation of leading experts in advanced imaging and data analysis methods. It will provide insights into molecular imaging, multiscale visualisation of infections and host response to help detect infection and its cause, and determine its severity for personalised treatment. The focus is on combining data from different imaging modalities to better understand the pathogenesis of difficult-to-treat infections.
Last week, in a groundbreaking display of international collaboration, the IMAGE-IN project recently held a highly successful Consortium meeting at Leibniz-IPHT. PhD Students, advisors and experts from various corners of the globe converged to discuss and work together on this ambitious initiative, which aims to revolutionize medical imaging techniques. The event not only provided a platform for sharing insights and project progress but also fostered camaraderie among participants who were doing PhDs in different institutions between Germany and Portugal.
Next, in Weimar, the Sepsis Update Conference also take place right after the event. This conference offered a forum for healthcare professionals to exchange knowledge and innovations in the fight against sepsis, a life-threatening condition. The spirit of international collaboration echoed through both events, highlighting the power of collective efforts in advancing scientific research and healthcare solutions.
