Baptiste Heiles has received a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship to develop multi-messenger ultrasound imaging of cancer
Baptiste Heiles, a postdoctoral researcher at the Maresca Lab (ImPhys), has received a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship from the European Union. Each fellow receives two years of stipend and a mobility allowance giving them the opportunity to boost their career abroad. His project, entitled Multi-messenger Imaging of Cancer aims to leverage early metabolic and vascular detection of cancer using ultrasound. His project was ranked in the top 0.3% of the Physics panel.

Bram Simons joined ImPhys as MSc student
Bram Simons joined ImPhys as MSc student. He will be developing a spike sorting technique, a spike is a potential given by neurons in the brain, which combines the CoSaMP algorithm from compressed sensing with template matching to create an online/real-time spike sorting program which can make the work of neuroscientists a lot easier. His supervisor is Sebastian Weingärtner.
