Marlene Wiart, PhD

I am a director of research at the Center for National Scientific Research and a member of the CarMeN lab, a biomedical research laboratory in the fields of metabolic diseases, obesity, type 2 diabetes and their cardiovascular complications (myocardial infarction, stroke), kidney failure and dyslipidemia, in Lyon (France). I received my M.Sc. degree in physics and my PhD in biomedical engineering from the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1. I have been a postdoctoral fellow in the University of San Francisco California (UCSF) with Prof. Robert Brasch and then a member of the Creatis lab in Lyon (France), in the team of Prof. Nighoghossian and Prof. Yves Berthezene. My research thematics focus on the development of in-vivo cellular & molecular imaging methods using innovative imaging probes and multimodal approaches for translational research in cardiovascular diseases and stroke in particular. I have developed a translational platform for investigating rodent models of ischemic stroke at the imaging platform Cermep. I am currently a member of the team of Prof. Ovize and of the research institute IHU OPeRa (organ protection & replacement).
