Marie-Odile Habert

Marie-Odile Habert became a medical doctor in 1984, got a qualification in Nuclear Medicine in 1986 and master degrees in Biophysics and Medical Imaging between 1990 and 1996.

She is now a nuclear medicine physician at Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, senior lecturer in biophysics at Sorbonne Université, and affiliated to the LIB research lab (Laboratoire d’Imagerie Biomédicale, Biomedical Imaging Laboratory). Since 2015 she is also a scientific coordinator for PET/MR research at the ICM (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, Brain and Spine Institute). She has been an elected member of the Administration Counsel of Sorbonne Université since 2017 and of the National Universities Council since 2010.

With 30 years of experience, Dr. Habert is a specialist in nuclear neurology, brain SPECT and PET. Particularly interested in neurodegenerative diseases and epilepsy, she is responsible for the PET, SPECT, SPECT/MR sides of clinical studies and therapeutic trials focusing on imaging biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson, LSA or frontotemporal dementia. Often multicentric, these studies allowed her to accumulate a strong knowledge of large imaging cohorts and related challenges.

In this context, her main goal while working with the CATI since its creation in 2012 is to offer her expertise in Nuclear Medecine image processing and analysis and also to improve the harmonization of multicentric PET/SPECT acquisitions. She is the co-director of the CATI since 2017.
