Martin Genet & Dominique Chapelle involved in ANR COVID grant

Martin Genet & Dominique Chapelle are part of a project (SILICOVILUNG) selected by ANR in the 4th wave of the COVID call, cf.

The project is managed by Pierre-Yves Brillet from Hypoxia & Lung/Université Sorbonne-Paris-Nord and Avicenne AP-HP Hospital. It aims at better understanding the regional physiological mechanisms in the evolution of Covid-19 pneumonia in their severe forms and to anticipate the development or not of sequelae, in particular fibrosis. It focuses on the processing of CT images of Covid-19 patients for an assessment of vascular remodeling and regional lung mechanics/compliance.

With this project we will hire one engineer or post-doc to extend Cécile Patte's PhD work, and begin its translation to the clinic.
