Data Analysis in Imaging

The goal of the Data Analysis in Imaging Section is to support and develop the Image Analysis community in the UK and the application of this science to the field of microscopy in all its forms.

The importance of microscopy and imaging data analysis is growing rapidly as new hardware and techniques enable researchers to produce ever more complex datasets. There is now a clear need for a trained and better-organised community of image analysts who will support this growth, as evidenced in a series of surveys in recent years (for example Miura 2021, Waithe 2021, Jamali et al. 2021).

In the bioimaging sector, recent initiatives like the European COST funded NEUBIAS network (2016-2020) have achieved great strides in establishing the need for better organisation and training of data analysts in imaging. Inspired by this community, the RMS Image Analysis Focused Interest Group (IAFIG) was formed in 2018, led by Dominic Waithe,  to support and continue these efforts, both in the UK and internationally. The Data Analysis in Imaging (DAIM) section of the RMS followed on from the IAFIG, officially becoming a full scientific section of the RMS in 2021. As part of this transition, the DAIM committee has broadened its scope to include physical sciences to ensure that all areas of the RMS remit are represented, hoping to network and share ideas across the different fields. 

The RMS is committed to being a welcoming, inclusive Society and encourages diversity across all activities and in the membership of our committees and groups.

If you are interested in joining any of the committees in the future, please visit our Join a Committee page.

RMS Section Awards

Launched in 2014, the Section Awards (formerly known as the Medal Series) recognise those who have made significant contributions to the field of microscopy. The RMS Section Awards celebrate outstanding scientific achievements across all areas of microscopy and flow cytometry with each RMS Science Section able to select a winner for their own award.
