Our teams: EPOPé

I am a Professor of Pediatrics at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. I am the chief of the Pediatric Emergency Department of the University Hospital Armand Trousseau in Paris and the former chief of the Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive care Unit of the same hospital. I was the coordinator of the French National Center of Resources to Fight Pain.

My main area of research is neonatal and pediatric pain. I developed a pain scale to assess procedural pain in neonates and participated in the development of another scale to assess pain in young children. I have conducted several studies on epidemiology and on pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to treat pain in children that have been published in high-rank journals.
