Highlights of the Year
Last year saw a net increase in the diffusion of our work outside our own academic circle. Perrine Berment has clinched a seat in the national final of Ma thèse en 180 secondes after winning regional competition. Research achieved in the team was mentioned in popular radio shows like https://www.franceinter.fr/emissions/futur-proche/futur-proche-28-octobre-2016?xtmc=kurde_medecin&xtnp=1&xtcr=14. This opens new collaboration opportunities locally and nationaly for the team.
On a scientific point of view, the team has significantly increased its work on modeling tumor heterogeneity and texture analysis with very promising results so far, particularly in the thesis of Thibaut Kritter, Agathe Peretti, Cynthia Perier. We have developed a model for texture evolution over time which may offer a much better insight than approaches using statistical methods on texture features (e.g. radiomics).
Julien Jouganous has won Prix Le Monde de la Recherche Universitaire, http://www.lemonde.fr/sciences/article/2016/11/23/prix-le-monde-de-la-recherche-2016-l-evolution-du-cancer-en-equations_5036804_1650684.html.
