François-Camille Grolleau



François Grolleau, MD, MPH

Initially trained in clinical medicine, I hold full board certification (France) in Anesthesia and Critical Care. I shifted my attention to methodological research in medicine after completing a Master of Public Health from Université Paris Descartes and a fellowship at McMaster University (Canada).

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics (Université Paris Cité), and a researcher at CRESS — METHODS team. My scientific work focuses on developing and implementing statistical/machine learning methods for the personalization of medical interventions. My applied areas of interest include Critical Care, Nephrology, and Cardiology.
