Workshop: “Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications”

We are inviting to the Workshop “Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications” at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) from March 15 until March 26. Due to the current restrictions, the conference will be held as an online event.

The workshop is organized within this SFB research program and is centered around the mathematical and experimental problems related to the applications studied in this project, involving adaptive optics, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustics, and superresolution imaging.

Mini-symposium in IPMS 2O21

The Tenth International Conference “Inverse Problems: Modeling and Simulation” (IPMS2021) has now been postponed to May 22 –28, 2022. The conference takes place in Malta.

We are happy to announce that we are organizing a mini-symposium entitled “Mathematical Methods in Tomography Across the Scales” related to our SFB. The speakers are members and associated members of the SFB.

Sixth Internal Meeting: Research and future plans!

The 6th Internal Meeting took place virtually on November 30th and December 1st. Unfortunately, we could not meet in person due to the current circumstances but this online meeting gave us the opportunity to be all together in an online room.

In this meeting, very interesting talks were presented from our members and associate members of the SFB. The principal investigators presented the current status of research and future plans. Gabriele Steidl (TU Berlin, Germany) and Glenn van de Ven (University of Vienna) presented their research interests and ideas for future collaborations within the SFB.

Hopefully we can meet in person again in Obergurgl in March!

Publication in Nature Communications by M. Schneider and G. Schütz

We are happy to announce that Magdalena Schneider and Gerhard Schütz, members of the SFB, have contributed to a recent publication in Nature Communications. The paper entitled “Unscrambling fluorophore blinking for comprehensive cluster detection via photoactivated localization microscopy” provides a methodology for determining and optimizing the blinking behaviour of any PALM-compatible fluorophore.

The full article can be found here.

SFB goes online!

The 5th Internal Meeting and the 4th Member Workshop took place online on September 1st and 2nd, respectively. After the cancellation of the previous meetings due to Covid-19, we managed to meet after a long time (at least online).

In the internal meeting, we had the opportunity to listen to interesting talks from external members of the SFB and participate in special sessions of the collaborating sub-projects. The member workshop consisted of member talks and talks from associated members with potential application to the scope of the SFB. The members elect Simon Hubmer and Ekaterina Sherina as the new member speaker and vice-speaker, respectively.

Hopefully we can meet in person again in Bad Mitterndorf at the end of November.

Cancer diagnosis with mathematics

Otmar Scherzer presented at the Research Newsletter (July/August 2020) of the University of Vienna how mathematics can be used to improve cancer diagnosis. This work is part of the SFB research project “Tomography Across the Scales”. The considered methods have applications from astrophysics to molecular biology.

The main idea (also called inverse problem) is to use tomographic measurements of a biological tissue in order to recover its properties (distinguish between healthy and diseased parts) without damaging it. The created algorithms are tested with simulated and experimental data and the results are promising.

Otmar Scherzer is the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Inverse Problems

Otmar Scherzer is the new Editor-in-Chief of the journal Inverse Problems. He is replacing Professor Simon Arridge (University College London), who has been in this position since 2015. Otmar Scherzer was a member of the Editorial Board of Inverse Problems for a long time, he has acted as Guest Editor on several special issues and he has also published many of his works in this journal.
