03 Nov 17. Staff Profile - Dr Vallatos
Dr Antoine Vallatos is newly appointed as a Research Associate in preclinical & clinical imaging research, within Edinburgh Imaging, at CCBS, University of Edinburgh
Antoine's main research interest lies in the development of novel MR techniques for quantitative characterisation of biophysical systems, with a particular emphasis in perfusion, flow & diffusion processes.
Antoine studied first in France, obtaining a BSc in physics & a Masters in mechanical engineering, acoustics & business administration. After a 4-year experience in industry, Antoine completed a PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Birmingham, carrying out MR studies of pattern-forming chemical waves in vortex flow with Dr Melanie Britton.
Antoine then joined the University of Glasgow - Experimental MRI Centre to participate in an interdisciplinary project investigating the infiltrative behaviour of glioblastoma, working with Dr William Holmes & Prof Anthony Chalmers.
Antoine's work focused on the development of preclinical MR techniques, probing brain perfusion & blood-brain-barrier permeability. Antoine was most interested in these techniques' quantitative assessment as markers of tumour cell infiltration regions not detected by standard MR methods.
