  • Biographie

    Stéphane Avril is a Professeur de classe excep­tion­nelle at Institut Mines Telecom affi­lia­ted at Mines Saint‐​Etienne in France. He runs a group of 20+ in soft tis­sue bio­me­cha­nics, with a spe­cial focus on consti­tu­tive mode­ling and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion using ima­ging tech­niques. He was the direc­tor of the CIS cen­ter for bio­me­di­cal and heal­th­care engi­nee­ring (70+ people) bet­ween 2010 and 2020 and has been the depu­ty direc­tor of SAINBIOSE (INSERM endor­sed labo­ra­to­ry with 100+ resear­chers) since 2016. Stéphane recei­ved his PhD in mecha­ni­cal and civil engi­nee­ring in 2002 at Mines Saint‐​Etienne (France). After posi­tions at Arts et Métiers ParisTech (France) and Loughborough University (UK) where he deve­lo­ped the Virtual Fields Methods, Stéphane retur­ned to his alma mater in 2008 and exten­ded his broad expe­rience of inverse pro­blems to soft tis­sue bio­me­cha­nics, espe­cial­ly regar­ding aor­tic aneu­risms in close col­la­bo­ra­tion with vas­cu­lar sur­geons. Stéphane was a visi­ting Professor at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor (USA) in 2008 and has been a visi­ting pro­fes­sor at Yale University since 2014.
    Stéphane has recei­ved many awards and dis­tinc­tions inclu­ding ICCB best com­mu­ni­ca­tion award (2017), Editor’s Choice Paper Finalist – ASME Journal of Biomechanical Engineering (2016), ESB best pos­ter award (2015), BSSM 50th Anniversary Plenary Speaker (2014). He has led two natio­nal ANR grants in soft tis­sue bio­me­cha­nics and super­vi­sed 25+ PhD stu­dents. In 2015, Stéphane was awar­ded an ERC (European Research Council) conso­li­da­tor grant of 2m€ for the Biolochanics pro­ject on : Localization in bio­me­cha­nics and mecha­no­bio­lo­gy of aneu­rysms : Towards per­so­na­li­zed medicine.
    Most of Stéphane’s research is aimed at impro­ving the treat­ment of car­dio­vas­cu­lar diseases by assis­ting phy­si­cians and sur­geons with bio­me­cha­ni­cal nume­ri­cal simulations.
    In 2017, Stéphane co‐​founded Predisurge, a spin‐​off com­pa­ny of IMT at Mines Saint‐​Etienne. PrediSurge offers inno­va­tive soft­ware solu­tions for patient‐​specific nume­ri­cal simu­la­tion of sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures. First appli­ca­tions in endo­vas­cu­lar aneu­rysm repair (EVAR) enable the auto­ma­tic desi­gn of fully‐​customized fenes­tra­ted stent‐​grafts. Preliminary eva­lua­tions reveal huge bene­fits for the 20000+ patients requi­ring fenes­tra­ted EVAR eve­ry year : fas­ter pro­ce­dures, increa­sed pre­ci­sion, near‐​zero risk of com­pli­ca­tions. Our vision for 2025 is that all EVAR pro­ce­dures will have to be nume­ri­cal­ly simu­la­ted for ensu­ring the highest degree of safety.
