Title: New MR non-invasive methods and biomarkers for longitudinal interventional studies : nutrition, physical activity, therapies.

Biography: Magalie Viallon, PhD, Doctor in Nuclear Physics from the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (Lyon, France,1999), she has been working for 5 years for Siemens HealthCare (France) as a clinical scientist and advanced application engineer. From 2006 and 2014, she has been actively involved in interventional projects (MR-Guided thermal ablation, FUS-guided ablation) developed at the University Hospital of Geneva (Switzerland), where she was senior MR Chef physicist and in charge of the scientific coordination of clinical research including 5 MR scanners from the Radiology Department MR platform as well as a PET-MR Philips prototype systems acquired in 2009. Since 2012, she is MR physicist at the CHUSE and senior researcher at the CREATIS lab. With more than 20 years of experience in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, including fast and functional imaging, multi-modal imaging (10 years of imaging experience in multimodal Ultrasound/MRI), her research focus mainly on the development of MRI methods using multimodal and parametric approaches for translational research in radiology involving all organs but with a major interest on cardiology and acute myocardial infarction, and muscle metabolism.
