Focus on Engineering for Health

Published on January 21, 2020 Updated on November 23, 2020
Researchers at Centrale Nantes deploy an interdisciplinary approach that is structured around three major challenges in terms of growth and innovation: factory of the future, energy transition, and engineering for health. In 2018, Centrale Nantes forged closer working relationships in the health sector: notably with Nantes University Hospital and Inserm.
  • 3D measurements of blood flow and biomarker calculation
    September 6, 2018
    Trials were conducted at Centrale Nantes in collaboration with the 'Institut du Thorax' (CHU / INSERM / CNRS / University of Nantes) with a view to setting up a test bench for the validation of blood flow measured in patients using new MRI techniques, called "4D flow MRI ", and super-resolution algorithms used to improve these MRI measurements.
  • Connect Talent Project MILCOM “Multimodal Imaging and Learning for COmputational Medicine” kicks-off
    The Pays de la Loire Connect Talent call for projects attracts renowned scientists to the region. Among them Diana Mateus, who joined the Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes (LS2N) to conduct her MILCOM research project with a multidisciplinary team of about ten people.
  • National recognition for the ILIAD project as it becomes a SIRIC - site for integrated cancer research
    ILIAD (Imaging and Longitudinal Investigations to Ameliorate Decision-making in multiple myeloma and breast cancer) is a regional consortium led by Irecan - a health cooperation grouping - which brings together Nantes University Hospital, Institut de Cancérologie and Angers University Hospital. Its partners are INSERM, the Arronax cyclotron, Centrale Nantes, the universities of Nantes and Angers and Atlanpole.
  • Smarthealth Project: a connected home for health
    March 3, 2018
    Pursuing work carried out over the previous two years and as part of the partnership between Centrale Nantes and Nantes University Hospital, a group of 9 Centrale Nantes engineering programme students worked on a project to develop a connected home for health. They followed the Connected Home for Health project-based specialisation, which aimed to train engineers capable of carrying out an authentic public health project by organizing themselves efficiently.
  • INSERM chair: studies on the development of certain tumour pathologies
    February 1, 2018
    Dr Aurélien Serandour arrived at Centrale Nantes as part of an Inserm chair under the supervision of Dr Stéphane Minvielle (Nantes-Angers Cancer and Immunology Research Centre - CRCINA). The team is studying mutations in the cell genome in cases of multiple myeloma, a form of cancer that affects the bone marrow and for which the risk of relapse in treated patients is significant. To this end, it relies on data collected at the Nantes University Hospital Center in Professor Philippe Moreau's (a specialist in multiple myeloma) department.
