The CESP deals with the main health issues, including psychiatry, cancer, chronic diseases and primary care. Our research relies essentially on epidemiology, with a strong integrative perspective associating the most fundamental biological aspects (genomics) with the most concrete environmental ones (social inequalities, culture).
Our work is intended to be applicable in the short or medium term, whether for prevention, treatment or organization of the health care system. This is why we have close collaborations with many actors (NGOs, ministries and public institutions, private companies) as well as a large network of relationships with prestigious institutes located on most continents. CESP operates under the auspices of INSERM, Paris-Sud University and Versailles Saint-Quentin University.
