Speaker: Pierrick Coupé, CNRS Research Director, Universite de Bordeaux, France

Abstratct: This conference will present our work dedicated to the quantitative analysis of cerebral MRIs, from the development of innovative methods to the production of new knowledge. First, I will present some of our brain analysis methods based on collective artificial intelligence. Then, I will describe our open access platform integrating our brain MRI segmentation tools. . Finally, I will present our recent BigData studies dedicated to lifespan modeling of normal aging and Alzheimer's disease.

Bio: Pierrick Coupé received his M. Eng degree in Biomedical engineering from University of Technology of Compiègne, France in 2003 and the M.Sc in Image and Signal processing degree from University of Rennes I, France in 2004. He obtained his Ph. D degree in Image processing from University of Rennes I, France in 2008 under the supervision of Dr Christian Barillot and Dr Pierre Hellier. Then, he worked as postdoctoral researcher at Brain Imaging Center of Montreal Neurological Institute from 2008 to 2011 under the supervision of Prof. D. Louis Collins. From 2011 to 2019, he worked as CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en Informatique http://www.labri.fr/  at the Bordeaux University. Since 2013 he is the leader of a new research group dedicated to patch-based image processing called PICTURA. Since 2019 he is CNRS research director.
His research on medical image processing covers different fields, from preprocessing to automatic detection of diseases. His work mainly focuses on four topics:  Deep learning for medical imaging, BigData for medical image analysis, quantitative MR analysis, computer-aided diagnosis and image enhancement.

The Feindel Virtual Brain and Mind (VBM) Seminar Series will advance the vision of Dr. William Feindel (1918–2014), Former Director of the Neuro (1972–1984), to constantly bridge the clinical and research realms. The talks will highlight the latest advances and discoveries in neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuroimaging.

Speakers will include scientists from across The Neuro, as well as colleagues and collaborators locally and from around the world. The series is intended to provide a virtual forum for scientists and trainees to continue to foster interdisciplinary exchanges on the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of brain and cognitive disorders.
