By studying how different kinds of actors (health economists, public institutions, public agencies, pharmaceutical industries, cancer charities, cancer “ligue”, etc.) produce devices to calculate the "cost of disease", his post-doctoral research seeks to understand the consequences of theses calculations on the "investment practices" in terms of fight against cancer.
