Thesis Project Description:
My PhD project is about characterizing the spinal cord and brain microtrauma encountered during the practice of Rugby. This project is defined within the iLab-Spine International Associated Laboratory (LIA), which is a contribution between CRMBM-CEMEREM, LBA and four Canadian institutions.
For the project, I will use new multimodal MRI techniques as well as biomechanical models and external biomarkers to investigate the short and long-term effects of the microtrauma on the central nervous system of the players. This project will be carried out in collaboration with the French Rugby Federation, the National League and the associated regional amateur and professional rugby clubs.
