ANR funding awarded to the TechnoFUS-Lab

Research Honors

The TechnoFUS-Lab, dedicated to new technologies for ultrasound therapies, was awarded funding by the ANR.

Following the 2021 ANR call for proposals related to the "Common laboratories" program (LabCom), the TechnoFUS-Lab project was awarded funding. This call for proposals was meant to support scientific researchers in academia in the co-construction of research laboratories, conjointly with companies, favoring long-term partnerships and the development of knowledge, therefore promoting innovation benefiting to both partners.


The TechnoFUS Laboratory focuses on new technologies for ultrasound therapies, and emerged from a collaboration between the ICube laboratory (Laboratory of Engineering science, Computer science and Imaging) and the company Image Guided Therapy (Pessac, France), specializing in image-guided ultrasound therapy devices. In order to face the technological challenges related to ultrasound therapies, the TechnoFUS Lab relies on the expertise of:

The TechnoFUS Laboratory is co-directed by Dr Jonathan Vappou, CNRS scientist and HealthTech member, and Dr Erik Dumont, CEO of Image Guided Therapy.
