Scientific summary

My researches are now focused on how to explain ICTUS, i.e. Idiopathic Chronic Thrombocytopenias of Undetermined Significance, in the same team lead by Prof Chloé James in collaboration with the research team of William Vainchencker at Gustave Roussy Institute in Paris.

These researches can be lead thanks to our ITP National Network through ITP Referral Centers in France.

I am also developping researches on cancer-associated thrombocytopenias.

Finally, I lead a simulation center in Bordeaux where we are actually conducting researches on how to better transfer new knowledge acquired during simulated sessions to clinical practice, and also researches on difficult debriefings.
