Senior Research and Teaching Assistant, my research focuses on the diversity of life (biodiversity), by exploring the evolutionary processes that generate diversity and the ecological processes responsible for its maintenance. I am also very interested in the role played by biodiversity on ecosystem functioning and the provisioning of ecosystem services.
Dimitri Van De Ville received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Ghent University, Belgium in 1998 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2005, he was a post-doctoral fellow at the Biomedical Imaging Group of Prof. Michael Unser at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. In 2005, he became responsible for the Signal Processing Unit at the University of Geneva (UniGE) and Geneva University Hospital (HUG) as part of the Centre d’Imagerie BioMédicale (CIBM), a large imaging initiative of the Lemanic academic institutions. In 2009, he was awarded an SNSF professorship and he started a joint tenure-track professorship at the UniGE (Department of Radiology and Medical Informatics, Faculty of Medicine) and the EPFL (Institute of Bioengineering, School of Engineering). Since 2015 he’s Associate Professor of Bioengineering at both institutions and his lab is located at the newly established Campus Biotech in Geneva.
He has published more than 100 journal papers on signal and image processing, including on wavelet theory and network science, and their application to the biomedical field, in particular functional brain imaging. Recent work on dynamic functional connectivity included evidence that resting-state functional networks can be disentangled in terms of their temporal overlap, which showed a more complete picture of dynamic organization of brain function and opens avenues for more sensitive biomarkers; e.g., in early diagnosis of patients with mild cognitive impairment. He is also interested in using real-time fMRI for neurofeedback applications.
Current academic position: Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology, University of Geneva, Switzerland
Biochemist and cell biologist by training, I joined the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics as Swiss-Prot biocurator in 2004. Since 2009, I am co-directing the CALIPHO (Computer Analysis and Laboratory Investigation of Proteins of Human Origin) group with Amos Bairoch. Our group, affiliated both to the SIB and to the University of Geneva, is both developing www.nextprot.org, a knowledge platform dedicated to human proteins, and pursuing the characterization of "orphan" human proteins by in silico and wet-lab approaches. I am involved in various committees inside the HUPO Human Proteome Project.
As a neurologist with expertise in behavioral neurology and movement disorders, I have the expertise to contribute to research project studying the neural substrates of gait and cognitive impairments. I completed my MD in the Geneva University Hospitals (Switzerland) and in La Salpêtrière Hospitals in Paris and also completed a PhD on the impact of executive function on gait in 2009 in collaboration between the University of Saint-Etienne and La Salpêtrière Hospitals in France. Based on studies on normal aging and neuropsychiatric disorders (i.e. Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or schizophrenia), I used different techniques (neuroimaging, blood biomarkers, quantitative gait assessments and drugs intervention) to understand the relationship between motor systems and cognition. As a result of these previous experiences, I have the skill to contribute to the identification of the age-related changes in the structural and functional brain systems of gait control and to examine how inflammatory biomarkers, as well as clinical profiles influence these changes. As an Instructor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, I worked on biomarkers (clinical, neuroimaging and biological) of early signs of pathological aging and the current application builds on my on-going work. Based on my research and clinical expertise, I am leading now clinical research project on the interaction between motor and cognitive function in neurological conditions, such as Parkinsonian syndromes, dementia and multiple sclerosis.
