Valérie Mazeau-Woynar succeeds Claire Giry at the head of Inserm’s Department of Partnerships and External Relations (DPRE). In this role, she will contribute to the implementation of Inserm’s institutional partnerships at regional, national, European and international level, at the behest of Directorate General, and in coordination with the Thematic Institutes.
With her multidisciplinary background in medicine, biomedical research and public health policy, acquired in France and the United States, Valérie Mazeau-Woynar was previously Director of Recommendations and Quality of Expertise at the French National Cancer Institute (INCa).
