Our aim is to advance scientific understanding by creating practical 3D image analysis solutions for biological structures and materials on multiple scales. We achieve this through the transfer of general-purpose methods to address specific questions. The methods are typically from the fields of image segmentation, image registration, geometry reconstructions, geometric topological analysis, and visualization and quantification. We adapt them for specific image analysis tasks and create software, so that domain scientists can apply our solutions. We develop new methods if available methods are not applicable. A research version of our software is available to scientists, with whom we work closely to evaluate and improve the quality of the image analysis. Mature solutions are also transferred to commercial cooperation partners to make them available as commercial software.
