Science wednesdays

Endoscopic surgery significantly limits the trauma compared to open surgery. The incisions allow, in many cases, to introduce surgical tools and the endoscope, a camera allowing the surgeon to visualize the organ.
One of the main problems is the identification of hidden anatomical structures, such as organ tumors. This raises a fundamental question: can a computer be used to modify the endoscopic image in real time to guide the surgeon's gesture,
for example by indicating the optimal incision to find a hidden tumor?

As part of the Wednesdays of Science, Adrien BARTOLI, Professor at UCA - Institut Pascal - will give a lecture on the theme "Can we guide the surgical procedure by computer?"


From biomolecule to energy, what role for biogas production in tomorrow's energy mix?

Research in field of bioenergy has suggested that  production of biogas from organic matter will be an important part of the green energy of tomorrow.
Invited by the Association for the Development of Scientific Animation in Auvergne (ADASTA), Pierre FONTANILLE, Research Professor at UCA – Institut Pascal - and Scientific Officer of the BIO-VALO platform, will give a lecture on the theme "From biomolecule to energy, what place for the production of biogas in the energy mix of tomorrow ?", Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 at 17:30 at the Nelson Mandela space in Clermont-Ferrand.
