For this tenth edition, we were very delighted to welcome Maxime Guye from CRMBM, Zeinab Hamze from MMG and Cassandre Vielle from INT. Zeinab and Cassandre both are PhD students that came to present their work, while Maxime Guye, Professor of Biophysics at the AMU Faculty of Medicine and deputy director of the CCRMBM, told us about technical breakthroughs concerning “Ultra-High Field MRI in Clinical Neuroscience”, his research domain.
The first part of the neurobinar consisted of a 10 min presentation of Zeinab and Cassandre PhD work (respectively entitled “The study of pathophysiological mechanisms of two forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease” and “Influence of peers on cocaine use and abuse“, followed by a set of questions from the audience. After that, Maxime led the second part of the webinar, presenting his current work in Ultra-High Field MRI, through a 20 min display, followed once again with questions.

Learn more about Maxime Guye from CRMBM, Zeinab Hamze from MMG and Cassandre Vielle from INT. You also have the opportunity to watch the previous Neurobinars on our Youtube channel.
Professor of Biophysics at the AMU Faculty of Medicine and senior consultant in the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology of the University Hospital. He held a research position in Neuroimaging at University College of London, London, UK, after his residency in Marseille. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of the French Society of Radiology; the French Society of Clinical Neurophysiology; the French League Against Epilepsy; and the French Foundation for Research against Epilepsy; He was elected member of the National Committee for Scientific Research (CNRS) (2008-2012) and President of the French Society for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine (2014-2016). Maxime has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers in the field of MRI and Neurology.
His research interests are Ultra-high field MRI; combining and comparing multimodal MRI methods (fMRI, dMRI, MRSI, 23Na-MRI) with electrophysiological recordings ((ic)EEG, EEG/fMRI); and brain connectivity.
I have done my previous studies in Lebanon; I did my bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory at Saint joseph University, Beirut and my master in biochemistry and molecular genetics, Faculty of Medicine at the American University of Beirut. During my masters, I’ve worked on a neurogenetic project in finding a novel gene related to Autism in the Lebanese population.
Currently, I am working on a rare genetic disorder known as Charcot-Marie-Tooth, under the supervisor of Dr Valérie Delague in Marseille Medical Genetics research unit, at Aix-Marseille University (Marseille- France). The project is focused on studying the pathophysiological mechanisms of two forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth.
I have a bachelor's degree in PNAC (AMU) and a master's degree in NIC neuroscience (AMU). I am in my 3rd year of doctoral studies under the supervision of Christelle Baunez (Bagamore, at INT). My thesis project is entitled "Influence of proximal social factors on cocaine consumption and the role of the subthalamic nucleus".
