Two new faculty members have joined Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Caroline Guglielmetti, PhD, joins the Biomedical MR Center as an assistant professor. She comes from the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at the University of California, San Francisco, where she completed postdoctoral training and has been an assistant researcher.

Guglielmetti’s research interests include noninvasive imaging methods to investigate the role of the immune system and glial cells in cerebral disorders. She employs a unique integration of methodologies, PET and hyperpolarized MRS, to tackle important questions in multiple sclerosis models as well as in other neurological disorders that may include Alzheimer’s disease and brain trauma.

Guglielmetti earned a bachelor’s degree in biology/physiology and a master’s degree in neurosciences from the Université of Toulouse III in France. She earned her doctorate degree from Antwerp University in Belgium.
