Biomedical Imaging Research Lab
CREATIS (Centre de Recherche en Acquisition et Traitement de l'Image pour la Santé)

CNRS UMR 5220 – INSERM U1294 – Université Lyon 1 – INSA Lyon - Université Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne.

Creatis is a biomedical imaging research laboratory, with about 200 persons, whose main areas of excellence and international influence are linked to two fundamental problems, namely:

  • Identification of major health issues that can be addressed by imaging
  • Identification of theoretical barriers in biomedical imaging related to signal and image processing, modelling and numerical simulation.

Creatis meets these challenges through a multidisciplinary approach, based on a matrix organisation which stimulates interaction between six research teams working in information and communication science and technology, engineering sciences and life sciences.

Region Auvergne Rhone Alpes

As part of the 2015-2020 State-Region Plan Contracts, the région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is financing a Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy system at high magnetic field of 11.7T to contribute to the research and innovation. This equipment is co-financed by the Délégation Régionale à la Recherche et à la Technologie and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. This equipment will be acquired by INSA Lyon and operated by the PILoT platform of the CREATIS laboratory located on the LyonTech-La Doua campus to increase the imaging capacity in basic and preclinical research at the University of Lyon and the région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
