Research interests: 
- Development of new lanthanide complexes for MRI and optical imaging: synthesis, purification (HPLC) and physicochemical characterization (NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, relaxometry). - Superparamagnetic nanoparticles synthesis, vectorization of nanosystems for targeting of different pathologies with active biological vectors (peptides determined by phage-display or synthetic organic mimetics) - Studies of interaction between contrast agents and biological receptors (by mass spectrometry, NMR, relaxometry, ultrafiltration, …) - Multimodal imaging studies
