Welcome!

The Microstructure Mapping Lab (mic-map!) is led by Prof. Ileana Jelescu and is affiliated to the School of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and to the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). Our group aims to develop an in vivo microscope of brain structure and function, using diffusion & functional MRI.
To this end, we work on the development and validation of new biophysical models of diffusion in tissues and of novel functional MRI contrasts, specific to neuronal activity.
These tools are then applied towards understanding the interplay between microstructure and function in neurological and psychiatric diseases.
