3D mapping of post-infarction scarring increases the prognostic potential of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging

[01 Oct 2021]

A multidisciplinary team of scientists based at the Universidad de Valladolid and the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) has developed a highly efficient method for identifying the 3-dimensional features of the scar tissue formed after a myocardial infarction.

Award #HiloTesis

[16 Jun 2021]

The LPI member Elisa Moya-Sáez has been awarded the local prize of the University of Valladolid in the I Edition of the "#HiloTesis" competition. The objective of this competition is to expose a summary of the doctoral thesis through a Twitter thread in a maximum of 20 tweets. The language used should be clear and attractive for the general audience.

A new doctor among us

[11 Jun 2021]

On June 1st, 2021, Dr. Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez passed his PhD with flying colors. The dissertation is entitled A multimodal analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging for the study of brain abnormalities in migraine: gray matter morphometry, white matter integrity and structural connectivity.

PhD Thesis Defense

On the 15th April 2021, Susana Merino Caviedes defended her PhD Thesis, entitled "Contribución a técnicas de procesado de imagen relacionadas con ecuaciones en derivadas parciales para la ayuda al diagnóstico de cardiopatías mediante resonancia magnética de realce tardío". It got the qualification of "Sobresaliente Cum Laude"

Springer interviews LPI

[03 May 2021]

Springer and The Journal of Headache and Pain have interviewed PhD Student Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez and members of the Headache Unit of the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid. In this interview, the findings of the article White matter changes in chronic and episodic migraine: a diffusion tensor imaging study are summarized. Moreover, the implication of the findings and some future research lines are outlined. Link to the interview: https://thejournalofheadacheandpain.biomedcentral.com/author-question-answer

LPI in #HiloTesis competition

[29 Apr 2021]

PhD Students Elisa Moya-Sáez and Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez took part in the I Edition of the "#HiloTesis" competition. The objective of this competition is to expose a summary of the doctoral thesis through a Twitter thread in 20 or less tweets using a clear and atractive language for the general audience. Elisa's thread is focused on the application of Artificial Intelligence to generate MRI data in order to reduce the acquisition time. Álvaro's thread is focused on the analysis of MRI data from diverse modalities to characterize the structural properties of the brain of patients with migraine. The threads in Spanish are available in the body of this article.

Welcome to a new Doctor

[24 Mar 2021]

Dr Oscar Peña passed yesterday his PhD with flying colours (despite some connection issues). The Thesis dissertation is entitled “Optimized acquisition and estimation techniques in diffusion MRI for quantitative imaging”. Thanks so much to the external examiners and welcome Oscar to the dark side of the post-PhD life.

LPI research on the effects of COVID-19 lockdown in migraine

[03 Mar 2021]

The LPI, in collaboration with the Headache Units of Hospital Universitario de la Princesa (Madrid), Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid and Hospital Clínico Universitario Lozano Blesa (Zaragoza), has contributed to the assessment of the clinical course of migraine during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Approximately half of the migraine patients who participated in the study reported worsening of their usual pain during the COVID-19 lockdown. The emotional impact of the lockdown and changes in the migraine triggers worsened the clinical course of migraine.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

[11 Feb 2021]

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to science for women and girls. The challenge is getting more women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Diversity in research brings in fresh perspectives, talent and creativity.

This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened.

LPI adheres to this initiative and, especially today, highlights the work of its women researchers.
