About us

MIMESIS research team focuses on its global objective which is to create a synergy between clinicians and scientists in order to develop new technologies capable of redefining healthcare, with a strong emphasis on clinical translation. In our case we joined IHU institute for this purpose.

The scientific objectives of our team, MIMESIS, are related to this ambitious objective. Over the past years we have developed new approaches supporting advanced simulations in the context of simulation for training. We now propose to focus our research on the use of real-time simulation for per-operative guidance. The underlying objectives include numerical techniques for real-time computation and data-driven simulation dedicated to patient-specific modeling. This last topic is a transversal research theme and raises several open problems, ranging from non-rigid registration to augmented reality.
