Potential gut microbiota-associated biomarkers in Wilson Disease

The gut microbiota (GM) makes an axis with various extraintestinal organs, including the liver or brain. This interconnection is regulated by an intricate metabolic, endocrine, and immune host-microbe crosstalk. In this seminar, we will discuss preliminary findings related to the characterization of intestinal microbiota associated with Wilson’s disease, a rare disease characterized by toxic copper accumulation that affects the liver and nervous system. Our main aim is to identify potential bacterial biomarkers that could provide insight into the etiopathogenic mechanisms of the disease and facilitate the development of novel diagnostic and treatment strategies

Integrating AI and Data Science in Medical Imaging: A Prostate Cancer Application

In the evolving healthcare sector, the fusion of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science with medical imaging is introducing a new era of diagnostic precision. In this seminar, we will present the collaborative efforts of the Joint Biomedical Imaging Unit (Unidad Mixta de Imagén Biomédica) in applying these techniques to medical imaging, focusing on a global problematic such as prostate cancer detection.
