Kick-off du RRI IMPACT - 4 mai 2022, CGFB
On May 4, 2022, the kick-off of the IMPACT research network was held at the Centre de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Bordeaux (CGFB). Mainly supported by the STS Department, this multidisciplinary program aims to promote research in biomedical imaging technology at the University of Bordeaux. Here is a summary of this kick-off day.
In December 2021, the IMPACT (IMaging for Precise medicine with A Collaborative Translation) programme was awarded the "Réseau Recherche Impulsion" (RRI) label by niversity's governance. this 4-year label, the project a kick-off event May.
RRI IMPACT : « Providing the right treatment to the right patient atthe right time »
The afternoon presentation of the program. Following the opening introduction by Gilles Guichard, director of STS, who recalled the full inclusion of IMPACT in the scientific policy of the department, the project leaders Bruno Quesson (CRCTB) and Thomas Tourdias (Neurocentre Magendie) explained the ambition the program: to create a multidisciplinary research network including the entire Bordeaux imaging community. IMPACT also aims to develop cutting-edge methods based on imaging for personalized medicine. Firmly focused on innovation, the project's longer-term ambition is to provide solutions to improve patient care. This first part ended with the of Etienne Duguet, vice-president of the UB, who presented the InnovationS program, that is part of the university's Horizon 2030 development strategy of the RRI IMPACT .
A collaboration between three areas of research excellence at the UB
The second part was devoted to the description of each of the three workpackages the projectthe highly collaborative nature of the project. Laurent Petit, Michel Thiebaut de Schotten (GIN-IMN) and Pierrick Coupé (LaBRI). Gaël Dournes (CRCTB), Yannick Crémilleux (ISM) and Sylvain Miraux (RMSB) the scientific ambitions of WP2, which focuses on cardio-thoracic imaging. Finally, Bruno Quesson (CRCTB), Olivier Sandre (LCPO) and Amandine Crombé (IMB) explained the research objectives oncology imaging (WP3).
A research-based medical imaging teaching project
afternoonthe RRI IMPACT's teaching objectives William Lefrançois, Sylvain Miraux (RMSB) and Bruno Quesson (CRCTB) The objective is students to be trained in advanced medical imaging by research team.
And finally, a brainstorm
This kick-off ended with a "brainstorming" round table discussion around of IMPACT's objectives. needs scientific animation, funding or to valorize research results were some of the a busy and successful launch day!
