A. Personal Statement
For the last fourteen years my research and activities are focused on ethics of biomedical research. At Inserm headquarters I have been in charge of referrals and coordinator of the Inserm of Institutional Rewiev Board (IRB) which is an Institutional Ethics Committee until 2012. As the head of the International Ethics Office I was coordinated the first French-speaking meeting on “Ethics and Good Clinical Practice” (Paris, October 2002) and organized the 5th Global Forum on Bioethics in Research, held in Paris, 2004. Since 2002, I am partner of several projects in ethics founded by the European Commission: EURETH.NET (FP-5) FASTER (FP-6) HEALTH RESEARCH ETHICS (FP6), and coordinator of EULABOR (FP-6), ETHICSWEB (FP-7), PHMethics (FP-7), and EURECNET (FP-7) and EMERI (Horizon 2020) ongoing project.
Currently I am full-time researcher at the French National Institute of Medical and Health Research (INSERM) at the UMRS_II42 Campus de Recherche des Cordeliers research laboratory on “Knowledge engineering in e-health” in Paris. My specialism is in ethics of biomedical research, particularly in privacy and data protection in relation with personalized health monitoring and reusing clinical data in research. Recently I focus on a new challenge to research Ethics that arise by Patient Led Research (PLR). I also do the research on the influence of Lay Crowd-sourced Expertise (LCE) in the new role of patient in the social network: online communities.
