The TIMC laboratory gathers scientists and clinicians towards the use of computer science and applied mathematics for understanding and controlling normal and pathological processes in biology and healthcare. This multi-disciplinary activity both contributes to the basic knowledge of those domains and to the development of systems for computer-assisted diagnosis and therapy.

TIMC has more than 300 members in 11 research teams, including more than 160 permanent staff: researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers, technicians and administrative staff. Its staff is made up of one-third doctoral students and post-docs.
