Dr. Laurent Hermoye, CEO

Laurent Hermoye

After graduating as an electrical engineer, doctor of medical sciences, and bachelor of business management, I founded Imagilys, a company specializing in advanced brain imaging, biomarkers, and neurosurgical planning. Through collaborations with research teams at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Liege University's Coma Science group, I endeavor to bring the most advanced brain imaging techniques from bench to bedside. My efforts have resulted in multiple publications in medical journals and at international conferences, but also in a neuroimaging software, BrainMagix, which has been used on thousands of patients. Having served as a university professor for 10 years, I am now the organizer of Imagilys’ Advanced Clinical Neuroimaging Course, teaching advanced neuroimaging techniques to doctors from all over the world. Through continuing medical education at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), I am continually at the leading edge of the newest techniques.
