Claire Beaudevin (PhD) is a medical anthropologist. She is a permanent Research Scientist with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the Cermes3 in Paris. Her current research focuses on the anthropology of genomics and medical genetics.
Her main fieldwork is located in the Arabian Peninsula (Sultanate of Oman, United Arab Emirates), where she studies the social stakes of the development of genetics and genomics within research and public health. In France, she also conducts an ethnography of public oncogenomic platforms, together with Catherine Bourgain and Ashveen Peerbaye.
Within Globhealth, she leads the Genetic Medicine and Genomics segment.
Jean-Paul Gaudillière is GLOBHEALTH Principal Investigator. He is Directeur de recherche (Research Professor) at the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (Inserm, Paris) and Director of the Centre de Recherche Médecine, Sciences, Santé et Société (Cermes3, Paris). His research interests have first focused on the molecularization of biology during the 20th century and later on the reconfiguration of medical research after World War II. He is the editor of several volumes on these issues and the author of Inventer la biomédecine (La Découverte, 2002). He is currently working on the history of biological drugs before the advent of gene-based biotechnology, with strong interests in the dynamics of knowledge production, clinical work, and market construction.
Mandy Geise (MSc in Medical Anthropology and Sociology, University of Amsterdam) is an Globhealth ERC-funded PhD candidate at the Cermes3 and EHESS in Paris. Situated at the intersections of anthropology and global health, her research interests include public health policies, citizenship and social exclusion, patient activism, global health governance, (bio)technological innovation, and sexual and reproductive health. Her research within the GLOBHEALTH project is concerned with the inscription of genetics as a medical specialty on the international public health agenda. It explores and analyzes how interna-tional organizations, such as the WHO, shape and are shaped by public health strategies on a local scale. Using an ethnographic approach with a historic component that follows the mobility of knowledge and practices tied to medical genetics, Mandy's research illustrates how medical knowledge about genetics and global political configurations manifest themselves in the health setting and are practiced, felt, and contested in Mexico.

Cindy Hemery (CNRS, Cermes3, Paris) is in charge of the logistical, financial and administrative aspects of this workshop.
