Welcome to the In2Brain research group

In2Brain is a research group at LaBRI, a research unit associated with the CNRS (UMR 5800), the University of Bordeaux and Bordeaux INP, and partner of Inria.

Our research group specializes in brain image processing, with a particular focus on MRI data.

Our work also aims to improve the understanding of pathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease, ultimately leading to enhanced diagnosis and potential advancements in treatment (see Research).

volBrain platform

In collaboration with the Medical Image Analysis Lab (MIA), at the ITACA (Institute of Information and Communication Technologies) of the Polytechnical University of Valencia (UPV), we have developed the volBrain plaform.

The volBrain platform is an online open MRI brain volumetry system. Our mission is to help researchers all over the world to obtain automatically volumetric brain information from their MRI data without the need of learning complex software packages or having expensive computational infrastructures in their local sites.

The volBrain platform works in a fully automatic manner and is able to provide brain analysis without any human interaction in few minutes. We have currently deployed pipelines analyzing different brain areas and diseases.

This online platform is free for non-commercial and non-medical purposes (research only)

Our research work is intended to be integrated as new pipelines on the volBrain platform.
