Scientific summary

My previous research interest was on the importance of psychosocial factors, common mental disorders (and their treatments) for chronic diseases, with a particular focus on their aetiological and prognostic role. A key objective of my research is to investigate the biological and behavioural processes through which these emerging risk factors influence chronic diseases risk. In order to achieve these aims data were drawn from large European cohort studies, complemented with medico-admistrative data: Whitehall II (UK), GAZEL (France) and the Health and Social Support study (HeSSup, Finland), D.E.S.I.R and E3N studies (France).

As former head of the Department for Research in Human and Social Sciences, Pubic Health and Epidemiology at the National Cancer Institute, my duties included: strategic planning of priority-driven and investigator-initiated research programs; developing, managing and evaluating a portfolio of research projects in cancer prevention; mobilizing relevant national and international stakeholders on strategic topics to advance public health cancer research in France and at a global level.

My current research interest is on the integration of precision cancer medicine into healthcare. Adopting a translationnal perspective and using both qualitative and quatitative approaches, this research aims to provide empiral data on organizational, economic, accessibility and impact issues related to the progressive integration of precision medicine innovations (molecular genetic testing, targeted therapies) into healthcare, particularly in oncology.
