Startups

Pixyl, the startup at the cutting-edge of brain imaging analysis for healthcare.

Sabrina Tirard-Collet - 1/06/2015

Pixyl has developed a new software solution for medical research designed to extract the maximum amount of information contained in MRI brain scans (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). This solution specifically locates, identifies and quantifies, from MRI sequences, a broad range of brain lesions related to pathologies such as multiple sclerosis, brain trauma, cerebrovascular accidents and brain tumours. Pixyl thus opens up new possibilities for the use of these imaging resources whose potential has hitherto remained under-developed in the biotechnology industry.

New technologies help us understand how infectious diseases spread in a hospital environment

29/05/2015

A joint study of the interactions between all the people in a hospital, the i-Bird (Individual-based Investigation of Resistance Dissemination) experiment has helped identify the factors involved in the spread and transmission of bacteria that cause nosocomial infections. The results confirm that new technologies may be useful in analysing epidemics. The initial results of this research project, led by teams at Inserm, the Institut Pasteur, ENS Lyon and Inria in conjunction with the AP-HP at the Hôpital Maritime de Berck-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais) have just been published in PLOS Computational Biology.

Computer Security

Inria has discovered a new loophole in the TLS protocol, widely used to secure data exchanges over the Internet

MD - 5/03/2014

On the 4th of March 2014, at the IETF 89 conference, a team of Inria researchers announced the discovery of a major security loophole in the TLS protocol. This protocol is the main security mechanism employed to protect communications over the Internet. Under certain circumstances, this weakness would allow hackers to steal the identities of users, particularly in banking and business networks. This loophole only affects a small number of Internet users and an update has already been released to address the problem. However, researchers at Inria are recommending that the TLS protocol be radically rewritten.

Delving inside smartphones and mobile apps with the CNIL and Inria

MD - 9/04/2013

Today, 24 million people in France own a smartphone, with around 1 million apps available which form part of their daily lives. However, users know very little about what happens inside these "little black boxes" which contain large amounts of personal information and are in fact very powerful computers. For the past year, the CNIL and Inria have been working together to analyse the data recorded, stored and sent by smartphones. They can now present the first results of this work. The CNIL used its internal innovation laboratory, and Inria its PRIVATICS research team to successfully carry out the project entitled Mobilitics.

Inria announces the creation of InSimo, an innovative company in the field of medical simulation software

MD - 7/03/2013

InSimo, a medical simulation software publisher, offers a software platform developed, among others, by Inria, which introduces a new generation of medical simulators to the market. These simulators are more accurate and take less time to develop. Furthermore, these simulators will help broaden the scope of application to meet new requirements in terms of assistance in planning and completing increasingly complex surgical operations.
