March 15: ARAMIS in the news

INRIA official website features the research of the ARAMIS Lab on the occasion of the French “Brain week”. Full article here (in French), and more pics there. Enjoy and Share!

Jan 8: Congratulations to Pietro Gori!

who successfully defended his PhD today about “Statistical models to learn the structural organisation of neural circuits from multimodal brain images, with application to Gilles de la Tourette syndrome”.

Dec 21: Congratulations to Takoua Kaaouana!

who successfully defended her PhD today on the “detection and characterization of brain micro-bleeds with applications on mutli-centric clinical data”.

Dec 4: Congratulations to Stanley Durrleman!

who won an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council.

Nov 13: New postdoc position opened!

The ARAMIS lab recruits high-profile researchers, data scientists and engineers with a solid background in statistical learning, data science and/or medical imaging. More info here or in the job offer section!

Nov 13: New position opened for a software developer!

We recruit a talented software developer to develop a product for the construction of virtual models of brain disease progression and its validation in a clinical environment. More info here or in the job offer section!

Oct 23: New PhD position opened!

We are looking for highly motivated students with a strong background in statistical learning and data analysis. The PhD will be about the development of novel learning methods for the statistical exploitation of multimodal longitudinal data sets. More info here or in the job offer section!

Sept 27: ARAMIS in the news!

Aramis was broadcasted yesterday in the French TV newsmagazine Zone Interdite (M6) on Sunday prime time. The report was about the brain-computer interface set up at our EEG/MEG Centre. The journalist managed to write the word “Fascinant!” using only her brain. Congratulations Mario, Fabrizio, Fanny, Laurent and Xavier! Well done!
