Latin America and the Caribbean comprise a vast and diverse region with significant disparities in scientific development and infrastructure. Nevertheless, it has a long history of regional integration and scientific collaboration. Based on a solid belief that international cooperation is essential to encompass the challenges of modern science, and in particular imaging techniques, Latin America Bioimaging (LABI) network aims to be instrumental for imaging scientists across the region to interact, share experiences and collaborate in expanding access to bioimaging training and technology.

As a hallmark of the LABI Meeting, we welcome you this year to the joint meeting of Latin America Bioimaging (LABI) and the Fluorescence Nanoscopy in Bioimaging Congress 2024 (FNB). LABI and FNB aim to enhance bioimaging capacities across Latin America and the Caribbean, fostering community building, and promoting career development for imaging scientists, all while striving to increase access to imaging resources. We are privileged to simultaneously host the annual meetings of both organizations with the support of the Sociedade Brasileira de Microscopia e Microanálise (SBMM), providing a unique opportunity for collaboration and knowledge sharing. Join us from August 19th to 23rd at the auditorium of Fundação Coppetec, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where members of both communities will come together to share experiences, align interests, and integrate efforts with the global bioimaging community. The LABI Meeting will take place from August 19th to 21st, followed by the FNB Meeting from August 21st to 23rd. We have an opening ceremony on August 18th at Museu da Amanha, and in August 21, all participants will have the opportunity to visit the Centro Nacional de Biologia Estrutural e Bioimagem (CENABIO) and participate in an outreach activity open to the general public. This five-day event offers a unique platform for networking and collaboration, providing opportunities to engage with decision makers in research infrastructure investment. The academic focus of Superres will allow the exchange of knowledge of cutting-edge research in fluorescence and imaging. In addition, there will be dedicated sessions for discussions with science policy makers, academics and commercial representatives. We look forward to welcoming you to Rio de Janeiro for what promises to be a memorable and productive meeting. Estamos ansiosos para recebê-lo!!
