    IAPA Project

    Infrastructure to Access, Share and Analyse Biomedical Data


    The IAPA project is funded by the Paul Sabatier University and includes the ICR (Institut Claudius Regaud, Hospital and Research Centre Institute against Cancer) as a partner.

    This project aims at building up a software and hardware infrastructure to allow for the cross-correlation of biomedical data coming from very diverse sources. The objective is to head for an infrastructure that will allow the synthesis and the cross-analysis of patient data in order to discover new diagnoses, therapies and treatments against cancer.

    Context of the work:

    Medical data are from very different nature, coming from heterogeneous sources distributed among the territories. An integrated medical system, able to find all the possible data for one patient, does still not exist. Many obstacles slowed the process: political, ethical, financial and informatics problems.

    This latter dimension of the problem is at the heart of the project. Available data are nowadays numerous, heterogeneous, multimodal, time stamped, structured and unstructured, É:

    - administrative information about the patients (age, gender, address, É)

    - clinical analysis (blood test, glucose and cholesterol rate, ...)

    - regulations and results of therapies

    - images from different nature (PET, MRI, X-Ray)

    - gene expressions

    To sum up the state of medical information, one can see the following: The medical practice generates more and more diverse information (text, images, video, tables, É), structured or not, raw data or data coming from a analysis process, stored or not in specialized data centres. The combination of these data proves however very useful in various fields of exercise of medicine (research, learning). Paradoxically, while the potentially useful data do not cease growing in quantity as in quality, it becomes increasingly difficult, even impossible to control and access them as a whole.

    PostDoc subject:

    The work of this PostDoc will be interested to have a modelling of the data available within a common framework, whatever its modality (clinical images, data, gene expressions...). Then this modelling will allow to build up tools for indexing and searching of data from their storage centres.

    The objective of this PostDoc is thus to propose solutions making it possible to better apprehend the heterogeneity on the level of the contents of information (heterogeneity in terms of structure and formats of the data) as well as on the level of access methods to these data. For this, a proposal is to investigate the problem from 3 different axes: First is concerned with the definition of a common reference pattern (terminology and ontology) allowing for the description and annotation of the data. Second is interested in the description of the data themselves (description of the metadata associated with them). Finally, last is concerned with the requests to the data, exploiting these metadata.

    A second part of the PostDoc will be to build algorithms and methods making it possible to find correlations between the various data available. Data mining techniques will be used in order to highlight the links and causalities between facts present in the available data sets. The aim is to make appear spontaneously some new knowledge, for instance concerning the therapy obtained using identified drugs over some (population of) patients. Multidimensional analysis or rule associations sets, among others can give some answers to this problematic.

    Scientific Background:

    PhD in Computer Science in the areas of: Data representations, ontologies, data indexing, datamining, multimedia
    Working experience in the field of Medical Informatics, being familiar with medical terminologies.
    Fluency in English. French is a plus.

    Duration and Salary:

    18 months
    2100 euros / months, gross salary

    Conditions to apply:

    This position is opened to foreign applicants. The conditions are thus:

    Not being a French citizen
    Not being more than 35 years old
    Not having completed a PhD in France
    Not being employed in a Research centre in France
