Imaging the Future

Bordeaux, May 14th & 15th, 2020

Over the past ten years, Bio-Imaging translational research has experienced an unprecedented expansion:  ten years of challenges, collaborations, success stories and significant advances, thanks to the combination of various approaches and disciplines.

Almost ten years after the LabEx TRAIL was born, its research teams in Bordeaux bring together the whole imaging community - national and international researchers, makers and users of images - to tell the story of the achievements of translational research and to highlight its forthcoming trends and developments.

Along with both national and local researchers, clinical and industrial partners, international experts are invited to blend their approaches, perspectives and specialties, in order to address hot topics in wide domains such as neuro-imaging, cardiology, or oncology, and transverse issues laced with artificial intelligence or big data.

Foreseeing the imaging of tomorrow also signifies to discuss again collectively the very meaning of « translational » research or the organization of research itself. Therefore, beyond a review of accomplished research our aim is to project ourselves into the future, looking ahead to the next steps of innovation in science and treatments.

The last decade opened new perspectives for both research and patients care, in all medical domains involving imaging. Practitioners are thus invited to participate to this events and share ideas, in order to contemplate the future of imaging in the context of their clinical practice.

The congress will also save a special place for patients and artists, not only in a science dissemination approach but also with the purpose of exchanging and sharing knowledge,  because imagining imaging worth seeking inspiration from various sources.


The Conference Imaging the Future will take place at the University of Bordeaux (building PJJ, place Pey Berland).

Registrations will open soon.

More information about the program and speakers will be available soon on this page.
