Ines Abdesselam


Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Oliver Rider’s group based at OCMR since February 2017 with a strong interest in obesity and its complications including, in particular, cardiovascular alterations.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biotechnologies and Health at the USTHB, in Algiers. In 2009 I moved to Marseille to complete a Master degree in Human Pathology. In 2012, I was awarded a 3 year PhD fellowship from the French Minister of Higher Education and Research in order to investigate the development and modulation of ectopic fat deposition using magnetic resonance imaging.  

My current research in Oxford focuses on understanding the differential short term (1-2 weeks) middle (6 months), and long term (2 years) effects of currently used bariatric surgery procedures on the cardiovascular metabolism and function using magnetic resonance imaging, spectroscopy and biopsy analysis. This will provide relevant information that allow better choice of surgical therapy to treat cardiovascular remodelling in obesity.
