Current studies and research projects
A first prototype of our geomatics platform has been placed under a
secured web server since October 2008. You can visit our e-Atlas of

A hematology study
in geo-epidemiology concerning Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) is
ending. I have made different calculations of incidence and I have made
cluster analysis with different methods from SatScan Software. I have
also used MapInfo® for building new base maps and to obtain
geographic coordinates. A scientific paper writing is in progress.
I worked in July
09, on the automation of cluster to make active disease surveillance with
cluster mapping outputs.
I have just reproduced results from a methodological article written by
«Allyson M Abrams et al A SaTScan™ Macro Accessory
Cartography (SMAC) package implemented with SAS®
A Kawasaki geography study
had been carried out in 2008. Because the number of disease cases is
very low and there is no potential interest by hospital team on this
subject: it has been decided to stop the study.
A Hematology study
in geo-epidemiology concerning lymphoma will begin soon.
A rectification of the
in Fortran is in progress in order to use it with SAS®. The
collaboration is composed by Aziz Serradj (Associate Professor of
