Chair for Biological Imaging

Welcome to our homepage!

The Chair for Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, is a multi-disciplinary academic research structure strongly integrated with the Institute for Biological and Medical Imaging of the Helmholtz Zentrum München.

CBI research focuses on innovative optical and optoacoustic methods that enable novel visualization of living biological tissue. The Institute has 11 laboratories ranging from engineering to biological and medical research, is home to researchers from more than 25 nationalities and promotes independent career development and diversity.

With a broad international presence and many prestigious awards, CBI leads imaging and sensing technologies, advances biomedical discovery and translates novel sensing technologies to clinical applications.
