BioDr. Myriam Amsallem, a cardiologist specialized in cardiac imaging, completed her training in Paris VII University, France. She has an interest in heart failure, cardioimmunology and early detection of pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure using imaging and circulating biomarkers. She is currently working on studies at Stanford University with Marie Lannelongue Hospital (French reference center for Pulmonary Hypertension, France) on studies on right heart remodeling with the goal of understanding the influence of inflammation and finding early biomarkers of remodeling. She also has a special interest in educational projects to improve the quality of imaging methodology.

BioNutrition today is slowly shifting from a one-size-fits-all approach to Personalized Nutrition, that is, personalized recommendations that take into account people’s unique physiological characteristics such as genes and lifestyle.
I am leading the genetic and epigenetic analysis of the largest study ever undertaken in personalized nutrition on low carb vs. low fat diets – the DIETFITS study by Prof Christopher Gardner. My primary goal is to understand how weight-loss affects gene activity through epigenetic modifications, and whether we can use these modifications to predict diet response for personalized weight-loss strategies.
I am also a lecturer in Nutritional Genomics at Stanford Continuing Studies and the Stanford Center for Professional Development, and a seminar speaker in Personalized Nutrition for healthcare professionals and fitness coaches. An award-winning science communicator, I use creative forms of communication such as digital drawings to explain complex topics from the world of epigenetics and science. Finally, I serve as an advisor for personal genomics companies, self-tracking technology businesses, and companies interested in investing in precision health research.
