Fog strongly perturbs the aviation, marine and land transportation, leading to human losses and high financial costs. Accurate forecastings of fogs are thus required to reduce their impacts on human a
MRI plays a crucial role in the detection of pathologies, the study of brain organization and the clinical research. As a result, the development of reliable segmentation techniques for the automatic extraction of anatomical structures is becoming an important field of MRI analysis. In the DeepVolBrain project, the final goal is to develop a new generation of quantitative MRI analysis methods to cope with the rise of BigData in neuroimaging and, ultimately, to generate new knowledge.
Time-frequency rheology of living systems
The overarching goal of OptimiX project is to improve the overall radiation safety of patient and clinical staff by (i). developing novel approaches for fast and accurate radiation simulation, (ii). propose methods for optimizing an X-ray imaging device configuration to minimize the delivered dose (iii). developing radiation awareness systems using Augmented/Virtual Reality visualization to facilitate teaching, in an engaging and intuitive manner, on the behavior of ionizing radiation.
High Optical Resolution for Unlebelled Samples
Looking for relevant linguistic units to improve the intelligibility measurement of speech production disorders – RUGBI
In the context of the speech production disorders observed in ENT cancers, neurological, sensory or structural pathologies, the objective of the RUGBI project is to make improvements to the measurement of the intelligibility deficit.
Multidimensional multifractal analysis: Theory and applications in ultrasound imaging of pancreatic cancer – MUTATION
Multifractal analysis enables the study of the fluctuations in the regularity of image intensity. Currently, its use remains limited to data that can be modeled with one single homogeneous texture, while many applications produce multidimensional data that naturally contain several zones that may interact in an intricate manner along their boundaries. Ultrasound imaging for cancer follow-up, the leading application of this proposal, constitutes an emblematic example.
LoToReg: Local Topology and global Regulation, modeling of a dynamic and multiscale coupling – LoToReg
DNA topology, i.e., torsional deformation experienced by the double-helix, is an ubiquitous feature both in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In bacteria, it is controlled by conserved topoisomerase enzymes, and is involved in an ancestral double-sided coupling with transcription. Relating the structure and function of the genome, it acts as a basal and global transcription factor that remains poorly understood. Characterizing this mechanism is thus a fundamental problem in bacterial genetics.
Better understanding the evolutionary history of the anthropoid primates in Southeast Asia through the fossil record of the Central Basin of Myanmar
Dissection of the cellular processes during heterologous protein production in P. putida – or how much is a protein? – CHEAP
In this project the following questions are tackled: What is the cost for the production of a specific protein? Where are the bottlenecks during heterologous protein production? Can this information be generalized and eventually predicted? Our vision is to develop a toolbox that allows us to predict the optimal environment for a specific gene or, eventually, also for a small pathway in order to achieve the best performance possible.
