Director of the Wave Physics for Medicine* unit and Deputy Director of the Langevin Institute in Paris, Mickaël Tanter used to dream of becoming a physician. When he became a researcher in physics, he developed medical applications, particularly ultrarapid ultrasound, which is now used by physicians. “There really is a virtuous circle between basic research, application, technology transfer, and returning to the laboratory to make new discoveries,” he says with enthusiasm.
