• September 2014: Initiation of the network
  • France Life Imaging (FLI) provides logistical and financial support to FINYS
  • February 2015: set-up of the first board members of FINYS



  • Create a national network for students in biomedical imaging
  • Promote collaborations between laboratories
  • Exchange research projects in their early phases
  • Enhance members attractiveness in the academic and industry
  • Facilitate young researchers employability
  • Organise social and scientific events



Jonathan Vigne

Jonathan is a PhD student at Laboratory for vascular translational science, INSERM U1148, Paris. He is a radiopharmacist in the nuclear medicine department of Bichat Hospital, Paris.
He did his masters at Cyceron imaging platform, Caen, France. Under the supervision of Prof A. Manrique, he worked on the development of innovative in vivo imaging approaches for the detection of post-myocardial infarction neo-angiogenesis. The main objective of the thesis was to functionalize a polymeric formulation of cyclodextrins nanoparticules using radiolabeled RGD peptides…read more


Maud Dupuy

Maud is a PhD student at the Aquitaine Institute for Cognitive and Integrative Neuroscience, CNRS – UMR 5287, Bordeaux.
Her research explores the involvement of intra-individual variability of cognitive performance and associated processes (emotional, social interactions, occurrence of adverse events) in the dynamic expression of symptoms and substance-taking observed in schizophrenia, in conjunction with the condition of brain structure and function…read more


Biliana Todorova

Biliana is a Postdoctoral researcher in the Unit of Antibodies in Therapy and Pathology at Institut Pasteur in Paris. She works on in vivo imaging of the anaphylactic reaction in preclinical models.
She did her PhD in the Immuno-Virology Division at the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in France. Under the supervision of Dr Roger Le Grand and Dr Catherine Chapon, she worked on the development of innovative in vivo imaging approaches for the visualization of the immune cell behavior in non-human primates…read more


Carine Kronland-Martinet
Industry Relations

Carine recently completed her PhD at the Center for Particle Physics (CPPM), Marseille and the Developmental Biology Institute (IBDM), Marseille. She focused on the development of intra-vital spectral X-ray imaging in reference to tumors.
Her thesis was formed from a strong collaboration between the imXgam team that specializes in particile physics at CPPM, Marseille, and two laboratories that specialize in biology – IBDM, Marseille and the Neuroscience Institute of Timone (INT), Marseille…read more


Jonathan Lavaud

Jonathan is a PhD student at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences UGA-INSERM U1209-CNRS UMR5309 in Grenoble.
His research focuses on the development and the characterization of new preclinical imaging modalities. He works on the characterization of a new preclinical multimodal imaging system which will combine Bioluminescence (2D and 3D), Fluorescence (2D and 3D) and X-rays techniques…read more


Isaac Adanyeguh
Digital Media Editor

Isaac is doing his PhD in Neuroscience at the Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC, Paris VI). He carries out his research at the Brain and Spine Institute of the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in the team of Alexis Brice.
The main focus of his research is the optimization and standardization of quantitative magnetic resonance techniques in the identification of robust biomarkers in polyglutamine disorders in view of therapeutic development – particularly in Huntington disease (HD) and Spinocerebellar ataxia. Under the supervision of Dr Fanny Mochel, he used 31-phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy…read more
