The sixth annual CytoData virtual meeting hosted by has now started!


CytoData unites microscopists and researchers mining cell imaging data to define novel and unique ways to tackle challenges in image analysis.

Since 2016 CytoData events have proven incredibly exciting and we hope to replicate the virtues of this meeting once again in 2021!

The meeting is composed of four sessions including Methods, Primary cells, Stem cells, and others, all featuring 10-minute talks. We have a fantastic line-up of invited speakers!

As in 2020, CytoData is held virtually this year from Wednesday 13-Friday 15th October including the popular Hackathon in the afternoon.
