2016-04-10 New venues where I teach in next months: Bioimage Data Analysis @EMBL 05-11.06.2016 @Heidelberg, 3rd Image Processing and Analysis PhD Course 20-24.06.2016 @Copenhagen and Cell Biology and Infection: Digital Image processing and Analysis Tools for Quantitative Light Microscopy Imaging 04-08.07.2016 @Athens If you are interested by quantitative biology based on microscopy imaging, as every year I strongly recommend these venues :)

2015-06-10 I will have a pleasure to give one of the opening lectures during the 9th Zurich Summer School on Multiscale Biomedical Imaging (31 August to 11 September 2015 at ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich and the University Hospital Zurich). During the lecture I will cover basic introduction to image analysis. I will also teach at the practicals where we will look closer into problems of image segmentation using machine learning approaches.

2015-02-10 New venues where I teach: 7th Course on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences 20-24.04.2015 @Porto and 2nd Image Processing and Analysis PhD Course 22-27.06.2015 @Copenhagen. If you are interested by quantitative biology based on microscopy imaging I strongly recommend these venues :)

2014-10-25 New publication available! We propose a novel method for signal transduction pathways modeling and we apply it to the intrinsic apoptosis pathway. With this approach we can explain the origins of heterogeneity in monoclonal, cancerous cell populations and study the properties of reversible resistance. More details in the publication: "Dynamics of cell-to-cell variability in TRAIL-induced apoptosis explains fractional killing and predicts reversible resistance", Bertaux F, Stoma S, Drasdo D, Batt G, PLoS Computational Biology, 2014.

2014-09-01 Two next venues where you can meet me: Image Based Systems Biology in Jena (25-26.09.2014) and Bioimage Informatincs in Louven (8-10.10.2014). On both venues I will present some newest lines of research concerning Yeast image tracking and multicellular spheroid modeling. Please do not hesitate to contact me before to set up a meeting!

2014-04-13 New publication available! This time it is more a generic view on Systems Biology and its problems namely (1) how to bridge different scales of modeling abstraction, (2) how to bridge the gap between topological and mechanistic modeling, and (3) how to bridge the wet and dry laboratory gap. It is aimed mainly into funding agencies and academic life organization. "Bridging the gaps in Systems Biology".

2014-03-01 I am happy to announce that I will be one of the instructors during BIAS 2014 @EMBL. It will be great event so do not hesitate to subscribe ;)

2014-02-10 New results available! This time we explain the origins of variability in fate decision making in cells undergoing extrinsic apoptosis. For this purpose we defined a novel simulation framework - a hybrid system - merging deterministic signal transduction and stochastic protein turnover model. Check more here: "Dynamics of cell-to-cell variability in TRAIL-induced apoptosis explains fractional killing and predicts reversible resistance".

2013-10-02 I am moving from INRIA Paris to Light Microscopy and Screening Center of ETH Zurich. The transition will take me another 6 months during which I will work 50% INRIA / 50% ETH. Unfortunately, some projects will slow down during this process, but I hope to profit from the new possibilities in the long perspective. Thanks everyone for your support&understanding!

2013-09-30 My first officially supervised thesis is out! Filip Mroz and Adam Kaczmarek graduated after a year spend together on the thesis "CellStar - implementation and comparative evaluation of a novel algorithm for segmentation and tracking of budding yeast cells in bright-field microscopy images". I am very pleased by their results (stay tuned!) and the collaboration with University of Wroclaw in general. To be repeated!

2013-05-19 New publications on the Signal Temporal Logic usage for validating large Systems Biology models (on the example of extrinsic apoptosis model): "STL-based Analysis of TRAIL-induced Apoptosis Challenges the Notion of Type I/Type II Cell Line Classification".

2013-01-30 Systems Biology Model Checker project got founded! I search for a Software Engineer to lead the project. Required: Motivation, Web programming, proven experience with software projects, interests in systems biology, open-mindedness. Time: 2 years, monthly salary: 2000-2500e, location: INRIA-Paris Roquencourt. Please contact me via email.
