On October 21, 2020, the Board of the Faculty of Medicine decided to grant nine out of a total of 20 applications that will share SEK 11 million. At the central level, Lund University received 27 applications this year. On the recommendation of the university's research committee, vice-chancellor Torbjörn von Schantz decided to grant seven of these on October 12. Another application may be granted after supplementing material has been handed in, which would make a total of 8 applications sharing SEK 20 million.
One of the recipients of this year's grants is an application for continued and increased support for the Correlative Image Processing and Analysis (CIPA) infrastructure. CIPA was awarded a total of SEK 3.9 million from the central level and the Faculty of Medicine for 2021-2023. In addition, a complementary grant was awarded to CIPA from the Faculty of Science with a focus on spectroscopy.
Experts on image processing and analysis
CIPA started its operations in 2019 and provides services for image processing and analysis in research projects as well as various types of educational activities. In September, a much-appreciated MATLAB workshop was held, arranged together with KI and MathWorks. CIPA has also acquired a workstation primarily for single particle cryoEM analysis which is installed at BMC. Thanks to the diverse expertise profiles of CIPA's application specialists, support and services are offered for a wide variety of image processing and analysis. CIPA also works actively with other infrastructures both at Lund University and externally, which provides good opportunities to find the relevant support through CIPA.
