Daniel Pelletier Imagerie des affections inflammatoires démyélinisantes du système nerveux central

Abstract :


Dr. Pelletier is a clinician-scientist. He was born and educated in the Province of Quebec, Canada. After first receiving a bachelor degree in Computer Sciences and studying a year in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Connecticut, Dr. Pelletier received his M.D. degree and completed his Neurology training in Quebec City at Laval University.
He subsequently received research training in multiple sclerosis and advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques at the Montreal Neurological Institute,
Canada. He joined the University of California, San Francisco MS Center in 1999 as a clinical instructor and a recipient of a National Multiple Sclerosis Physician Award Grant for his work in molecular imaging. He received the Harry Weaver Neuroscientist Scholar Award in 2005 from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Dr. Pelletier has special interest understanding the natural history of various forms of MS using non-invasive exploratory neuroimaging techniques and
integrating the advances into the daily care of patients. He therefore uses state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods to reveal the intricate mechanisms of MS, with the goal of using this understanding to track the efficacy of medications and improve outcomes. He has been the principal investigator on several important clinical trials at UCSF.
