To discuss UK involvement in Euro-BioImaging. The project Euro-BioImaging is a pan-European research infrastructure project which is part of the ESFRI process http://cordis.europa.eu/esfri. The aim of Euro-BioImaging is to provide access to imaging technologies across the full scale of biological and medical applications, from molecule to patient. EuroBioImaging will address the imaging requirements of both basic and medical imaging communities by creating nodes in many ESFRI member states that will deploy imaging infrastructure in a coordinated and harmonised manner and thus address the fragmentation of such efforts currently present in Europe. The project is coordinated by Jan Ellenberg, who is also scientific coordinator for the advanced light microscopy parts of Euro-BioImaging, and Gabriel Krestin who is the scientific coordinator for all parts concerning medical imaging. Since early summer 2009, Antje Keppler is project manager of EuroBioImaging

Zooarchaeology is the analysis of animal remains from archaeological sites to reconstruct the cultural lifeways of people and the interrelationships between people, animals, and the environment.
