The project for a portal listing individual health studies from French sources is the result of observations of the following:

  • The lack of visibility of French health studies and the corresponding data about individuals;
  • The necessity for different actors to be able to identify studies on a given topic, even before these have been published, for example to identify collaboration opportunities or possible lacks of information on an emerging issue;
  • A fragmented research landscape with the existence of many national or international portals or metadata catalogues with varying perimeters and levels of information;
  • The absence of a systematic declaration on a public site of non-interventional studies and health studies other than those covered by the Jardé law. This makes it difficult to identify such studies.

The objectives underpinning the implementation of this new tool are to improve:

  • The visibility of individual French health studies and their results;
  • Collaboration between teams;
  • The reuse of health data collected for research purposes.

  • Assess the relevance of setting up a national Portal for individual health studies given the existing system and define its outline and characteristics.
  • Accompany the feasibility study by putting forward technical and functional scenarios to implement and roll out the solution whilst ensuring it is a valid response adapted to the characteristics and needs of the research communities concerned.

Rémy Slama is an environmental epidemiologist and a senior researcher at the Inserm. He has a doctorate in epidemiology from the Université Paris-Sud (2002), is a ‘polytechnician’ and an agricultural engineer.

He leads the environmental epidemiology team at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences (Inserm, CNRS, University of Grenoble-Alpes). His research aims to characterise the influence of environmental contaminants (atmospheric pollutants, endocrine disruptors, exposome) on reproduction and child health (the concept of the developmental origins of health and disease, or DOHaD). His work on the exposome is notably based on the European project Helix which he set up with M. Vrijheid (ISGlobal Barcelona) and the SEPAGES new generation couple-child cohort supported by the ERC.

He has also worked in an expert role for the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) and the European Commission’s committee on environmental risks (SCHEER). He is a member of the Scientific Council of Santé Publique France and is in charge of relations between the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE) and the World Health Organisation. He is also a member of the editorial committee of the journal ‘Environmental Health Perspectives’ and leads the scientific council of the national research programme on endocrine disruptors (PNRPE). He has co-authored around 100 scientific publications and the book Le Mal du Dehors, l’influence de l’environnement sur la santé (Quae, 2017). He received the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology’s Tony McMichael Award.

He took over the direction of the IReSP in June 2020 and also directs the AVIESAN Thematic Multi-Organization Institute on Public Health.
