UMR (Unités Mixtes de Recherche – Mixed Research Units)

Institut de recherche en santé environnement et travail (Health, Environment and Work Research Institute – UMR 1085 IRSET)

IRSET is a mixed research unit bringing together INSERM, Université Rennes 1, Université des Antilles et de la Guyane, the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Rennes and EHESP. Located in Rennes, it is one of the major interdisciplinary research clusters in France dealing with risks related to the environment and work. Its main objective is to understand the effects of environmental, chemical, biological and physical factors on human health.

IRSET has 3 research groups:

  • Environmental stress, infection, signalling and cancer
  • Endocrinology, reproduction and development
  • Genomics, proteomics, microbiology and analytical chemistry

LERES is one of the IRSET platforms, and researchers at the Health-Environment-Work and Sanitary Engineering Department (DSETGS – Département santé-environnement-travail et génie sanitaire) are members of an IRSET team.

Host teams

The Healthcare organisation management host team (EA 7348 MOS – Management des Organisations de Santé – Healthcare Organisation Management)

In pursuit of the goal of developing research in healthcare organisation management (a topic rarely dealt with by French research teams), EHESP supports MOS host team (Management des organisations de santé – Healthcare Organisation Management).

2 areas are studied by the team’s researchers:

  • Hospital performances
  • Healthcare pathway performance

Pharmacoepidemiology and health care research host team (EA 7449 REPERES)

Managed jointly by the EHESP and Université de Rennes 1, this research team, set up in January 2017 (22 members), aims to develop studies on:

  • health care, drug and health product safety
  • analysis of health care pathways and of spatial and social and economic variations in the health care offer and access to health care
  • development of top level skills in the processing and analysis of big health databases (SNIIR-AM and PMSI)

By moving into the field of pharmacoepidemiology and that of health service research, REPERES enters into an applied research approach, to put big data in the health care sector to good use.

The REPERES team, partly comprising university lecturers and researchers from the Department of Quantitative Methods in Public Health (Département Méthodes quantitatives en santé publique – METIS), is managed by Emmanuel Oger, university professor and hospital physician, and is co managed by Olivier Grimaud, professor at the EHESP School of Public Health.
