The Inserm Ethics Committee was created as a fully fledged stakeholder in the dialogue between the scientific and medical research community and wider society.

Chairman: Hervé Chneiweiss (Inserm/CNRS - Neuroethics)

The aims and working practices of the Inserm Ethics Committee (IEC) are firmly integrated into the practical and everyday life of the Institute: it provides support to Institute staff in identifying and incorporating ethical issues into their projects from the outset, and in considering their methods.
