    Thesis Title : “IR imaging in breast cancer : from histopathological recognition to characterization of tumour microenvironment”. Investigated IR imaging potential in breast cancer disease understanding and management Determined data recording and processing methodology Construction and validation of an IR-based histopathological recognition tool through major cell types database Discovered a specific spectral signature of both the immune response to breast cancer and tumour microenvironment compared to immunocompetent organs and wound healing stroma Dealed with univariate and multivariate statistical tools (PCA,PLS,Cluster analyses, MANOVA) Thesis work supervised by Prof. Goormaghtigh (Research Director with the National Fund for Scientific Research at Université Libre de Bruxelles) in collaboration with Dc. Sotiriou (Director of the Breast Cancer Translational Research Unit J-C Heuson at Bordet hospital)
