Section: Other Grants and Activities
Participants : Jérémy Lecoeur, Christian Barillot.
duration : 36 months, from 01/11/2006
This three years project is devoted to the development of a solution for processing medical images from multi-dimensional signatures in order to study brain pathologies and to segment brain structures with complex image representation. This grant is being used for founding the position of Jérémy Lecoeur.
CPER 2007-2013, NeurInfo Platform
Participants : Elise Bannier, Isabelle Corouge, Adrien Férial, Nicolas Wiest-Daesslé, Jean-Yves Gauvrit, Christian Barillot.
duration : 7 years, from 01/01/2007 Visages is the founding actor of a new experimental research platform which has just been installed August 2009 at the University Hospital of Rennes. The University of Rennes 1, Inria, Inserm for the academic side, and the University Hospital of Rennes and the Cancer Institute “Eugene Marquis“ for the clinical side, are partners of this neuroinformatics platform called "'NeurINFO" (http://www.neurinfo.org ). This platform concerns the in-vivo human imaging for clinical research and neuroinformatics especially in the context of CNS pathologies. A new research 3T MRI system has been acquired in summer 2009 in order to develop the clinical research in the domain of morphological, functional, structural and cellular in-vivo imaging. Visages and its partners in the Neurinfo project are committed to use this new research platform for developing new regional, national and international collaborations around fundamental and applied clinical research projects dealing with in-vivo medical imaging. In the next three years, additional equipments will arrive among them are two PET labs for experimentation of new ligands for molecular imaging, an in vivo confocal microscope for interventional imaging in neurosurgery and large computing facilites for storage and processing of large collection of data. This new platform has been supported under the “Contrat de Projets Etat-Région“ (C. Barillot is the PI) and have received a total amount of 5.1 Meuros for the period of 2007–2013. A specific technical staff to conduct this platform is under recruitment in order to make this new environment open to a large scientific and clinical community.
