An increasing number of biological projects aim at elucidating the links between biological function and phenotype through imaging and modelling the spatiotemporal characteristics of cellular or organism dynamics. We will present and discuss some recent developments of robust and automated tools and software for flexible and robust quantitative assessment of 2D/3D+t dynamic imaging data from biological projects. Thanks to these tools, it is possible in a large number of experiments to automate the extraction of quantitative data from images and to facilitate the understanding of the biological information contained therein.

From 2004 to May 2005, he held a joint appointment as Chief Technology Officer at the Institut Pasteur Korea, Seoul. Previous to that, he was a staff scientist for nine years at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg. His research interests are in image processing and analysis for biological microscopy, including cell and particle tracking, multidimensional microscopy and image restoration, and more generally in multi-disciplinary approaches in bioimaging. He was the General Chair of IEEE International Symposium Biomedical Imaging ISBI'08. He is an IEEE Fellow, Past Chair of the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee (BISP-TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Senior Area Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters and member of the Editorial Board of the journals Medical Image Analysis and BMC Bioinformatics.
