Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Dr Karim Lekadir holds a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from University of Montpellier II (France) and a PhD in Medical Image Computing from Imperial College London (UK). He is currently a Ramon y Cajal researcher at the Barcelona Centre for New Medical Technologies (BCN MedTech, Barcelona, Spain). Previously, he was a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University (USA) at the Integrative Biomedical Informatics Lab. He participated in several large-scale European projects in the field of computational biomedicine, such as the euHeart project for image-based modelling of personalised interventions in cardiology. His algorithm developed during his PhD for CMR-based cardiac functional quantification has been CE marked and commercialised by CMRtools, and is now used in more than 250 clinical centres worldwide. His current research focuses on the development of machine learning algorithms for the analysis and interpretation of biomedical image data using novel techniques such as radiomics.
