|His main research interests concern the biomechanical modeling of soft tissue and their integration into medical devices used to assist surgeons for planning (pre-operative surgical assistance) or to guide them during surgery (intra-operative guidance). The corresponding applications concern plastic and maxillofacial surgery, breast cancer treatment, neurosurgery, orthopedics and rehabilitation, based on organs (face, tongue, eyes, breast, brain) or musculoskeletal models (lower limb, including bones and soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, fat and skin).|
Yohan Payan is involved in many scientific projects among the following ones:
- Project funded by the Foundation for Medical Research (FRM) : « Medical Imaging for the generation of personalized biomechanical models of the lower limb: applications to ankle arthrodesis and tibial osteotomy »
- European project STINTS : « Skin Tissue INTegrity under Shear »
