Cancer and virtual reality: our students focus on new treatments

Published on 12 October 2021 by NEOMA

NEOMA students are now getting involved in the fight against cancer. In Rouen, the association Cheer Up organised an event entitled Cheer Hope on 7 October, a day of free talks open to everyone. It was a real success, with almost 280 people attending throughout the afternoon.

Professors from the CHU (University Hospital) came to talk about the new technologies being used to support patients and in medical imaging. At the centre of this afternoon of discussion were the benefits of virtual reality headsets.

Fabrice Bauer, cardiologist at the CHU in Rouen, spoke on ultrasound guidance in cardiac surgery.
Fabien Doguet, professor at the CHU de Rouen spoke about the contribution of robotics in surgery.

And it was to finance their purchase that Cheer Up then offered to put on a charity evening with the students, a tombola, and an auction of sports players’ jerseys. The last time Cheer Hope was held, in 2019, the association raised 15,000 euros. We will have the figure for 2021 at the end of the year.
