The general project aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of stroke. Stroke kills around 7 million people a year and disable as many. The impact of a stroke on the brain is very dependent on the delay before treatment (Time is Brain). Unfortunately, many patients do not have access to care fast enough, often due to limitations in brain imaging.
In the PPM team at the Biomedical Imaging Laboratory, we believe we can improve the diagnosis of stroke patients by exploiting new ultrasound techniques. Among other things, we are developing super-resolved ultrasound approaches that allow resolution gains of a factor of 10 [Couture et al. IEEE UFFC, 2018 and Errico et al. Nature, 2015]. In addition, in the context of a collaboration with LVTS and PHIND, we are developing new molecular targeting microbubbles to better characterize thrombi. The latter project was funded by ANR FightClot.
The postdoctoral researcher's project, in the context of FightClot, aims to develop ultrasound techniques in order to better detect and distinguish the microbubbles targeted at thrombi. These techniques will be based on recent developments in ultrafast and 3D ultrasound.
The postdoctoral researcher will be required to:
- Program (MatLab) ultrasonic acquisition sequences on an ultrafast ultrasound system
- Perform experiments to validate super-resolved ultrasound imaging
- Validate an ultrasound scanner for preclinical transfer
- Write scientific articles
The postdoctoral researcher has solid knowledge in acoustic waves and in the medical field. He / She also has a great expertise in Matlab programming. Good knowledge of English is strongly encouraged.
The work will be carried out in the context of the Microvascular Physiology and Pathology team within the Biomedical Imaging Laboratory at Sorbonne University (CNRS, INSERM). This team, mainly oriented towards super-resolved ultrasound imaging, currently consists of 5 doctoral students, 1 engineer, 1 Postdoctoral fellow and a research director.
