Neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, engineers, physicists.

Laurent Hermoye, PhD, founded Imagilys in 2005, a company which he is still heading. His professional field of expertise includes advanced MR imaging techniques, namely fMRI, DTI, perfusion imaging and neurosurgical planning. He is the author of significant scientific publications (Radiology 2005, Neuroimage 2006), in collaboration with leading American universities, such as Johns Hopkins. He has taught medical imaging techniques at Belgian Université Catholique de Louvain during 10 years.

Vasilis K Katsaros, MD, PhD, is a neuroradiologist at Athens Oncological Hospital and scientific associate at Athens University’s Department of Neurosurgery. He has been trained at Freiburg University Hospital. He has more than 20 years experience in clinical imaging of brain diseases, with a special focus on multi-modal imaging of brain tumors.

Steven Laureys, MD, PhD, is a Belgian neurologist, head of the Coma Science Group at Liege University. With major publications (NEJM 2010, Science 2006, Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2005, The Lancet 2000, etc.), he is recognized worldwide as a leading scientist and clinician in the field of neurology of consciousness.

Jean-Jacques Lemaire, MD, PhD, is a neurosurgeon, head of the Department of Neurosciences at Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital in France. He has been trained at Harvard Medical School and UCLA. His specialities include deep brain stimulation, deep brain anatomy and connectomics.

Imagilys is a neuroimaging company based in Brussels (Belgium), Warsaw (Poland) and Bangalore (India). Its main mission is to develop and commercialize state-of-the-art and user-friendly systems. Its second mission is to perform translational research to develop future clinical techniques.

Capital of Belgium and Europe, Brussels is located at the crossroads of northern and southern countries. Enjoy Belgian gastronomy and taste the world’s best beers, chocolates and waffels. At 1-hour drive from romantic Bruges, and 1.5-hour train from majestic Paris, it’s a central location for a city trip.
