About the Interventional Neuroscience group

The Interventional Neuroscience Group, headed by Prof. Frank Hertel, is highly translational research unit that transfers innovative neurosurgical methods form bench to beside and back. Their main focus is applied computational science for clinical practice in Neurosurgery. Researchers and clinicians develop methods that use artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms as well as tools used in image-guided procedures and biomedical modelling in Neurosurgery and Systems Biomedicine. 

Besides scientists and clinicians, a number of PhD, MD and Master students are working hand in hand in highly interdisciplinary projects. Collaboration partners are the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL), the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Laboratoire National de Santé (LNS).

This allows to analyse results from clinical research on a high scientific level and transfer those efficiently from the lab setting into the clinic and back. Innovations from research directly benefit patient care, and clinical observations can lead to new insights. The developed tools in the Interventional Neuroscience group offer high innovative potential and are interesting for industrial partners.
