Scientific summary

I have a background in Molecular and Cellular Biology (PhD). I have also been working on the use of MRI to assess angiogenesis in brain tumor but also for cell tracking and on the use of PET to assess hypoxia and cell proliferation. My main fields of application are brain tumours in experimental models and in patients with the objective of improving current brain tumor treatments (anti-angiogenic, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) but also for the development of new therapeutic approaches.
