Previous Lab Members

Nancy Sloan, Graduate Student. Nancy received her Bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech in Engineering Science and Mechanics with complementary minors in Mathematics and Biomedical Engineering. Although an engineer by training, she has always been drawn to neuroscience and the puzzle that is the brain. Her primary interests are stroke rehabilitation and adult plasticity as well as diagnostic imaging of CTE. In the Chaumeil Lab, Nancy worked on hyperpolarized magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy on 13C compounds for possible applications in TBI and CTE.



Nolwenn Garnier, Visiting Master's student. Nolwenn was a French visiting student in the Chaumeil Lab in the summer 2019. She studied physics, chemistry and biology in France (ESPCI Paris). In the Chaumeil lab, she worked on developing hyperpolarized 13C magnetic resonance methods to monitor oxidative stress in the context of neuroinflammation.




Brice Tiret, Post Doctoral Fellow. Brice Tiret was a post-doctoral scholar in the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science Department at UCSF from January 2017 to May 2019. At UCSF, his research involved methodological development of biomarkers of neuro-inflammation using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). He specialized in in vivo proton and phosphorus single voxel MRS, as well as hyperpolarized 13C Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging (HP 13C MRSI) methods. Since May 2019, Brice is a Field Application Specialist at Magnetic Insight Inc.



Jessie Mosso, Visiting Master's student. Jessie was a French visiting student in the Chaumeil Lab in the summer 2018. She studied physics and engineering in France (ESPCI Paris) and specialized in neuroscience and medical imaging next year for a master’s degree at Université Pierre et Marie Curie. In the Chaumeil lab, she worked on neuroinflammation and her 4-month project aimed at comparing the metabolism of inflammatory cells and cancer cells in the context of brain tumors using hyperpolarized magnetic resonance imaging. Jessie is now conducting her PhD in Switzerland.




Soo Hyun Shin, PhD Candidate. Soo Hyun is a student in UC Berkeley-UCSF Graduate Program in Bioengineering. He did his rotation in the Chaumeil lab with an interest in developing a novel hyperpolarized 13C probe for monitoring neuroinflammation. Soo Hyun is now conducting his PhD in Berkeley on chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) MRI for renal and cardiac imaging.
