Team structure

The SISTM team was re-structured into three research axes (formerly two) in 2019:

The three axes collaborate closely with each other.

In fact, the third axis gives the motivating examples leading to the methodological work done in the two other axes. The first axis deals with the raw high-dimensional data generated in clinical epidemiology or biological studies and aims at reducing the dimension of the problem or better annotate the data available (e.g. automatic gating of cytometry data). The second axis aims at building mechanistic model to understand and predict the biological phenomenons by using the available information. The idea then is that the results of this modelling part feed the third axis to define the next strategies to be evaluated in clinical studies and the design of these studies.

Team composition

The SISTM team core has changed in December 2019: Daniel Commenges, DRE Inserm, HDR (emeritus from September 2014) has retired from research activities. Daniel Commenges founded the “Biostatistic” team of Bordeaux within an Inserm unit in the 1990s. The research team was officially labelled by Inserm in the early 2000s and was lead by Daniel Commenges until 2013. The team split in 2014 into two teams: the Inserm “Biostatistic” team (led by Hélène Jacqmin-Gadda), and the “SISTM” team (led by Rodolphe Thiébaut) that joined the Inria BSO center.
