Séminaire du CIMMUL – Yasser Iturria-Medina
2 décembre 2022 @ 13 h 30 min - 14 h 30 min
Multimodal brain modeling for characterizing disease mechanisms in neurodegeneration
Montreal Neurological Institute (McGill)
Most neurodegenerative disorders are highly complex and heterogeneous, presenting alterations at multiple biological entities. We will present our work on integrating several biological scales and data modalities (from molecular omics to multimodal neuroimaging and clinical data) via empirical and mechanistic brain models. These models allow to track disease progression and heterogeneity while clarifying the underlying pathomechanisms. They also focus on providing individually-tailored predictions of therapeutic needs.
Bio : Dr. Yasser Iturria-Medina is an Assistant Professor in the Montreal Neurological Institute (McGill), holding a Canada Research Chair in Multimodal Data Integration in Neurodegeneration. He is also an associate member of the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health, and the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (McGill). Iturria-Medina’s Lab – Neuroinformatics for Personalized Medicine – focuses on defining and implementing multiscale and multifactorial brain models for further understanding and treating neurological disorders from a multifactorial perspective. The lab combines molecular, imaging and cognitive data using integrative mathematical/computational approaches. https://www.mcgill.ca/neuro/yasser-iturria-medina
