Gaël Chételat, (PhD, HDR), is Director of Research at Inserm. She is responsible of a research team named « Multimodal neuroimaging in brain diseases» including engineers, technicians, postdocs and PhD students.
Gaël Chételat is particulary interested in assessing the relationships between the different neuroimaging modalities to further our understanding of the physiopathological processes of ageing and Alzheimer's disease. Her works combine structural and functional MRI with PET using different radiotracers in individuals ranging from cognitively intact young and older adults to patients at different stages including subjective cognitive decline (SCD) to demented patients. Together with her team, she developed innovative multimodal approaches to disentangle complex mechanisms of diseases or cognitive processes. She also developed tools for early diagnosis and disease monitoring. Her research team is also interested in the concepts of lifestyle, wellbeing and healthy ageing, which they approach in assessing the relationships between lifestyle factors and different neuroimaging markers of ageing and AD, in relation with cognition. They will also run intervention programmes based on lifestyle modification to promote mental health and wellbeing in the ageing population.
