Abstract

This will be a discussion session

Speakers

Genevieve Buckley

Genevieve Buckley

Genevieve Buckley is a scientist and programmer based in Melbourne Australia. She builds software tools to solve problems in scientific discovery. Her interests include deep learning, automated analysis, and contributing to open-source projects. She has a wealth of professional experience with image processing and analysis, spanning x-ray imaging, fluorescence microscopy, and electron beam microscopy. She is a maintainer for several freely available open-source software tools, including the napari image viewer and dask-image.

Dr Renee Whan

Dr Renee Whan

Head of Biomedical Imaging Facility (BMIF), Senior Lecturer, Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre, Division of Research, UNSW

Renee is Head of the Biomedical Imaging Facility at UNSW where she oversees the operation and strategic development of an advanced light microscopy facility. She leads a team of expert scientists to collaborate and provide research support and training in design, specimen preparation, acquisition and analysis of microscopy data. She has particular passion for multiplex imaging, lighsheet and FLIM and the associated infrastructure.

Lachlan Whitehead

Lachlan Whitehead

Senior Research Officer Centre for Dynamic Imaging Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Dr Lachlan Whitehead completed his PhD in X-ray diffractive imagine in 2011 before joining WEHI's Centre for Dynamic Imaging in 2012 providing both hardware and software support to the Centre's users.

Since this time, he has spearheaded the Centre's image processing and analysis capabilities and has developed a range of analysis pipelines in projects ranging from the single cell to whole animal lengthscales. Collaborating with microscopy users locally and abroad, he has developed a familiarity with a range of different software tools and analysis methods. His current interests include deep learning, multiplexed tissue imaging, light-sheet methods, and 3d rendering and animation.

Cameron Nowell

Cameron Nowell

Cameron has had a multidisciplinary research career covering biochemistry, molecular biology, histology, microscopy imaging (both optical and electron) and image analysis. Cameron managed the Centre for Advanced Microscopy at the Parkville branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research from 2008 until its closure in 2012. He then joined the Centre for Dynamic Imaging at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute further expanding his skill sets in whole animal imaging, and malaria research. In 2013 he took on the role of manager for the imaging and flow capability within the Drug Discovery Biology theme. Over the last 7 years the facility at MIPS has expanded to include new cutting edge and unique hardware such as FLIM, CARS, FCS and super resolution. Additionally image analysis has become a key part of all projects.

Cameron is a respected microscopist and image analyst that has been a part of many and varied projects from cells, mice, worms, fish and even crown of thorns starfish. Collaborations extend outside of Australia to the US and Europe. Cameron is often called on to present workshops on image analysis across Australia
