The FUNDACION PARA LA INVESTIGACION DEL HOSPITAL UNIVERSITARIO LA FE DE LA COMUNIDAD VALENCIANA (HULAFE) is a Spanish non-profit organization that carries out the patient-oriented scientific research of the La Fe’s Hospital Health Department.
In particular, the work done for the Procancer-I project is being developed at the Biomedical Imaging Research Group (GIBI230), which is part of the Medical Imaging department led by Dr. Luis Martí Bonmatí. The research group belongs to the Network of Biomedical Research in Bioengineering, Biomaterials, and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN) and has been recently recognized as a node of the RedIB (Distributed Biomedical Imaging Network) within the National Scientific and Technical Singular Infrastructures (ICTS) of the Spanish government. Along with the research group members, the Urology and Pathology departments at HULAFE are equally involved in the project, bringing vast expertise in multiparametric MR of the prostate, PIRADS scoring, biomarkers implementation for lesion grading, and clinical-pathological documentation of cases.
HULAFE’s main role in the project involves the provision of cases and the development of AI models. At the final stage of the project and as WP7 leader, HULAFE will lead the Clinical Evaluation of these models.
