Vicomtech-IK4 is an applied research centre for Interactive Computer Graphics and Multimedia located in the Technology Park of San Sebastian (Basque Country - Spain), currently counting with about 85 researchers (Ph.D., Engineers, Computer Scientists…) and an annual turnover of 5,4M€. One of its main application areas is the healthcare and biotechnology industries, focusing on the development and integration of medical imaging techniques and bioinformatics methods for studying the interactions and interplay of different levels of biological information.


Role/activity of organisation in the project

Vicomtech-IK4 is the leader of SP3-Targeting & Diagnostics. We develop and integrate computational technologies and tools for the MRI, microMRI, SPECT and PET images generated within Nanother, including: pre-processing, analysis, management, software interface, communication of images and relevant biomedical data. We investigate computational algorithms and automated tools across a variety of biological scales and time points, as well as a range of imaging modalities.
