Didier Guillemot
Epidemiologist, MD specializing in Internal Medicine, PhD, HDR. DG is Professor of Public Health and Epidemiology, at the UVSQ Medical School. In 2007, he became Joint Director of the INSERM Department of Public Health Research. He also currently chairs (since 2004) the Advisory Board of the “Surveillance and Research” group of the national “Keep Antibiotics Working” program of the French Ministry of Health. He set up and currently directs the “Pharmacoepidemiology and Infectious Diseases” research groups. His principal research interests lie in the evaluation of broad programs for minimizing escape from anti-infectious treatment and improving our understanding of the biological determinants of such treatment escape.

Elisabeth Delarocque-Astagneau
Epidemiologist, MD specializing in Hepatology, PhD. EDA worked for several years at the Institut de Veille Sanitaire (the French Public Health Surveillance Institute), in the Infectious Diseases Department, on foodborne diseases and viral hepatitis, and received her PhD in Epidemiology. In 2008, she moved to the Emerging Diseases Epidemiology Unit at the Institut Pasteur to work on hepatitis C projects in Egypt. She joined the group in June 2011, to coordinate epidemiological investigations. Her main research topic will concern multiple strain infections and their potential impact on anti-infective evasion and prevention strategies.
 
Lulla Opatowski
Biomathematician, MSc (ENSIMAG–Ecole Nationale supérieure en Informatique et Mathématiques Appliquées), PhD. LO joined the group in September 2011. She specializes in the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases and drug resistance and her research focuses primarily on the development of mathematical models for epidemiological studies, of the phenomenon of bacterial resistance to antibiotics and vaccines in particular. Since July 2009, she has worked as a research associate at Imperial College London, in the Department of Infectious Disease Modelling, developing models and methods for estimating the transmission parameters for various pathogens (influenza, measles). She was involved in the Vaccine Modeling Initiative funded by the Gates foundation, which involved collaboration between the modeling groups at Imperial College London (UK) and Princeton University (USA). She obtained a tenured assistant professor position at the University of Versailles Saint Quentin.
 
Annick Opinel
PhD, HDR. AO joined the group in March 2010, after working in the Centre de Recherches historiques de l’Institut Pasteur (2003–2009), principally on the history of infectious and parasitic diseases and medical entomology. She carries out research in the fields of policy-making in public health, acceptance of and resistance to vaccination in society and among healthcare workers (hepatitis B and measles mumps rubella vaccines) and student populations (human papilloma virus).
 
Jérôme Salomon
Epidemiologist, MD, PhD. JS was Senior Advisor for Public Health under B Kouchner (1999–2001). JS joined the group as a research fellow INSERM interface contract in 2008. He is the Principal Investigator of the ASAR program and is involved in the ChARLI program.
 
Anne Thiébaut
Statistician and epidemiologist, MSc (ENSAI, French National School of Statistics and Information Analysis), MPH, PhD. AT joined the group in October 2007 after postdoctoral training at the US National Cancer Institute. She has focused on methodological developments for time-to-event analysis and exposure measurement error in the field of cancer-related nutritional epidemiology. Her research interests now extend to modeling drug exposure and its impact over time, in terms of hazard function and attributable risk, with a view to improving quantification of the role of antibiotics in resistance acquisition.
 
Laurence Watier
Statistician and epidemiologist, MPH, PhD, HDR. LW joined the group in September 2008. Her work focuses on the choice of statistical methods for analyzing correlated data and methodological developments for time-series analysis. Her principal field of research is the public-health impact of changes in exposure to antimicrobial drugs.
 
Bich-Tram Huynh
MD, PhD. During her PhD, BTH worked on the consequences of malaria during pregnancy for both mother and child in Benin. She joined the group in January 2012 as a postdoctoral fellow and coordinates the pilot phase of the ChARLI program.

Boris Labrador
MPH, PhD. During his PhD, BL worked on the functional estimation by the occupation time. He joined the group in June 2012 as a postdoctoral fellow and works on the I-BIRD study.

CBB has served on the editorial boards of several medical journals, including JAMA, AJRCCM, Intensive Care Med and ICHE. His major fields of interest, reflected in his more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, are the epidemiology and management of sepsis, hospital-acquired infections and resistance to antimicrobial drugs. His contribution to our research activities relate principally to program coordination (e.g., MOSAR) and scientific advisory work relating to bacterial resistance from a clinical standpoint.
