Research Focus

My research program focuses on atherosclerosis and its screening before it progresses to myocardial infarction, stroke or sudden death.

I strive to advance atherosclerosis imaging research; my team and I are interested in the biological determinants of atherosclerosis instability and the heterogeneity of atherosclerotic disease. Over the past 9 years, I have developed novel methodologies to assess characteristics of atherosclerosis vulnerability in patients, and established CT and MRI cardiovascular imaging core laboratories (LICA) which serve both my own research activities and multicenter trials. Member of many national and international expert committees, I also contribute to the development of guidelines in cardiology and imaging.
