Dr. Laurent Hermoye

CEO

After graduating as an electrical engineer, doctor of medical sciences, and bachelor of business administration, I founded Imagilys, a company specializing in advanced brain imaging, biomarkers, and neurosurgical planning.

I have 18 years of extensive experience in brain imaging. I have conducted research studies, co-authored publications with pioneers in our field, and taught neuroimaging techniques worldwide.

I serve as chief executive officer of Imagilys. Our neuroimaging software suite, BrainMagix, has helped thousands of patients. Over the last 15 years, I have led the company from its first sales to concluding long-term agreements with world-class players in the medical industry.
