S. Herrmann organized a workshop on Mathematical Finance at the Institut Élie Cartan.
B. Bihain, the head of the Laboratoire de Médecine et Thérapie Moléculaire (INSERM, Nancy), asked to our group of Probability and Statistics to investigate the proteomic profiling of clinical samples. More precisely, the question involves the differential analysis of the expression levels of a large subset of the proteome of a particular type of clinical specimens to identify those proteins whose change in expression levels might be associated with a given disease process. The statistical tools are Data Analysis, and Support Vectors Machine. P. Vallois, S. Tindel (Université Nancy 1) and J.-M. Monnez (Université Nancy 2) have organized several seminars on these topics. S. Mézières and A. Koudou (Université Nancy 2) also participate to the bio-statistics group. O. Collignon has a Cifre thesis.
