Functions within Institut Curie:

Irène Buvat, physicist, is an expert in the development of quantification methods in molecular imaging using Emission Tomography. She is the head of the Inserm Laboratory of Translational Imaging in Oncology (LITO) at Institut Curie, Orsay, France. Her research focuses on developing and validating new biomarkers in Positron Emission Tomography, including using Artificial Intelligence methods, for precision medicine. She is a strong advocate of reproducible research and her lab, thanks to Christophe Nioche, leads the development of the LIFEx freeware for radiomics (ie the high-throuput extraction of features from medical images), a software that currently has more than 5,000 users worldwide.

Models including pathological and radiomic features vs clinical models in predicting outcome of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer treated with immunotherapy.
