Cross-cutting axis: Biology - Health

Biology and Health iconeThe transversal axis ICT-Health federates teams developing automatic information processing methods with applications in health, life sciences and environment. These domains are interconnected and their future development are increasingly dependent on information science.

For society, the expected consequences cover each level of life: from genome to biology to ecosystems, each having connections with medicine.

The main scientific challenges are modeling partially-known dynamic systems, bioniformatics, methods and infrastructure for managing and processing distributed data (grids, clouds,...), security, telemedicine, medical imaging, 3D visualization, virtual environments, robotics or computer-aided surgery.
