Xavier Pennec, one of our permanent researchers, has been elected as a MICCAI fellow this year for “pioneering theoretical contributions grounding the field of computational anatomy, shape statistics and medical image computing”. He is the second scientist from Asclepios being honored with this distinction, along with Nicholas Ayache.
From the The MICCAI website,
“MICCAI Society Fellowship was started in 2009 to recognize the contributions of senior members to the MICCAI community. Initially, 12 Fellows were elected in 2009, with a further 3 elected each year since.”
