Pioneer in the development of digital holographic microscopy, Dr. Pierre Marquet, Ph.D., M.D. works on development of novel cutting-edge optical techniques to identify new biomarkers by the exploration of cells and tissues obtained from stem cells of children with a high risk of developing major psychiatric disorders. Over time, with a better understanding of the neurobiology of those disorders, he hopes to improve their treatments and develop primary prevention strategies.
