Stanley Durrleman, co-leader of the “ARAMIS – Algorithms, Models and Methods for Images and Signals of the Human Brain” team at the Paris Brain Institute, received the Inria Young researcher prize from the French Academy of Sciences for his work.
This €20,000 prize rewards the work of Stanley Durrleman and his team on the development of statistical learning methods and the design of predictive models of the evolution of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. He has developed algorithms capable of predicting the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in patients over the next four years. This tool could play a key role in evaluating the effectiveness of therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases.
I am very honoured to receive this prestigious award. It is recognition of work that has been built at the frontier between several disciplines: mathematics, computer science, neuroscience and medicine. We are now looking to use our tools to help demonstrate the effectiveness of promising treatments by administering them at the right time to the right patient. ”
