Scientific summary

I have a background in MRI physics. At the interface between physics and biology, I work on the development of MR imaging methods to characterize the brain microvasculature (arterial spin-labelling and susceptibility based approaches): blood flow, blood volume, blood-brain barrier permeability, vessel size/density, and tissue oxygen saturation. My main fields of application are acute brain pathologies such as brain tumours and brain ischemia but also other pathologies that involve the neurovascular unit, in experimental models and in patients.
