Nicholas Ayache: "Medical Imagery and I.T.: the personalised digital patient"

Françoise Breton - 25/01/2012

Nicholas Ayache is the 2011 winner of an ERC grant worth 2.5 million Euros, aimed at experienced researchers. With many years of commitment to researching the analysis and simulation of medical images, he will now be able to rise to a major challenge: to design digital models of organs and pathologies enabling the incorporation of a patient's medical images and the simulation of the progress of their pathology and the suitability of the treatments before they are applied.

The Tara Expedition: plankton tells us a lot about our climate

Hélène Xypas - 2/12/2011

Saturday September 5, 2009. The Tara vessel leaves Lorient for a two and a half year expedition across the world’s oceans. This expedition is the first attempt to carry out a global study of marine plankton. The aim is to increase our knowledge of this ecosystem, by studying its biodiversity and by better understanding its key role in regulating the climate. A specialist in DNA sequencing and bioinformatics, Laurent Noé, a member of the Bonsai project team, talks about the expertise of his team on this voyage.
