2018 Interns

It's spring! Time for M3DISIM to host a few internships: Jérôme Diaz (Fourth year student at École Polytechnique within the Paris-Saclay University Biomechanical Engineering Master) will work on a cylindrical ventricular model with Martin Genet and Philippe Moireau. Chloé Giraudet (Master's student from Paris-Saclay University Biomechanical Engineering Master) will work Continue Reading2018 Interns

Arthur Le Gall : Conference paper accepted in Computing in Cardiology

It has been shown that Systolic Period Duration (SPD) measured with trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) is significantly shorter compared to measurements made with radial arterial pressure waveform. This difference could be interpreted in terms of arterial pressure amplifi- cation, a mechanism by which arterial pressure waveform is transformed alongside the arterial Continue ReadingArthur Le Gall : Conference paper accepted in Computing in Cardiology

New paper on A. Armiento PhD work on protein polymerisation

The second paper of Aurora Armiento and Philippe Moireau has been published in PLOS One. In this paper, we invesitage how models and data assimilation can be very useful tools to study oligomerisation processes and propose new pathways consistent with experimental observations. This article correspond to the second publication associated Continue ReadingNew paper on A. Armiento PhD work on protein polymerisation

New paper on microneurography and the cardiac baroreflex

Team member Alexandre Laurin recently published new methods to explore the relationship between the nervous and cardiovascular systems. The paper significantly simplifies existing techniques and diminishes the time-window necessary to obtain valid information. Their findings also support the idea that although the timing of norepinephrine bursts at the artery bed Continue ReadingNew paper on microneurography and the cardiac baroreflex

(Closed) PhD position on Cardiac Biomechanical Modeling of Chronic Right Ventricle Loading and its Impact on the Left Ventricle Health

MΞDISIM research team of Inria Saclay Ile-de-France jointly with University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, is opening an interdisciplinary PhD position combining cardiac simulations of the heart function with clinical data of patients with congenital heart diseases of the right ventricle (RV). Stenosis of the pulmonary valve is a Continue Reading(Closed) PhD position on Cardiac Biomechanical Modeling of Chronic Right Ventricle Loading and its Impact on the Left Ventricle Health

PhD position on Shape observers for elastodynamics problems – Applications to medical imaging and to the characterisation of red blood cells

In mechanics, can we physically characterize a dynamical system by observing its shape variations? More precisely, given an (infinite-dimensional) dynamical system, how can we assimilate the shape of the deforming domain to estimate the complete solution and eventually identify some physical parameters? Our problem belongs to the category of data Continue ReadingPhD position on Shape observers for elastodynamics problems – Applications to medical imaging and to the characterisation of red blood cells
