Dimitri Van De Ville, head of the Medical Image Processing Lab in the School of Engineering, has been selected by the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) to receive the Technical Achievement Award for 2024.

The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) Technical Achievement Award is given annually “to recognize an individual(s) for outstanding achievement, contribution(s), and/or innovation in a technical area of biomedical engineering.” It includes a $1,500 honorarium. This year, Dimitri Van De Ville was selected as one of two recipients for his "contributions to biomedical signal and image processing and their applications to neuroimaging".

Dimitri Van De Ville's multidisciplinary neuroimaging work has facilitated a better understanding of spontaneous brain activity, and helped to establish new markers for cognition and clinical conditions. Research in the Medical Image Processing Lab (MIP:Lab) focuses on obtaining new insights into brain function and dysfunction by modeling the brain as both a network and a dynamical system. The lab is run jointly between the School of Engineering's Neuro-X Institute and the University of Geneva's Department of Radiology and Medical Informatics.

The prestigious EMBS honor will be awarded in July during the opening ceremony of the EMBC'24 conference in Orlando, Florida, USA.
