Background

CSGB was established 1 April 2010 with a grant from the Villum Foundation of DKK 25 million. A second funding period has started in 2015, based on an additional grant from the Villum Foundation of DKK 30 million.

The background for establishing CSGB is the increasing demand for developing stochastic analysis of advanced bioimaging data. The data may arise from electron microscopy, giving access down to the molecular level. Bioimaging data are extremely challenging to analyze, because of their complexity and huge size. In 2010, the funding opportunity arose, and CSGB was established as a Centre of Excellence funded by the Villum Foundation.

The researchers

CSGB joins four Danish research groups at the Universities of Aarhus, Aalborg and Copenhagen. Such short geographical distance facilitates the exchange of competences in the key disciplines of CSGB. These include stereology, spatial statistics and statistical image analysis. Denmark is the world-leading country for stereology of microscopy images.
