3ème Forum de la recherche en histoire, éthique, et études sociales de la médecine et des sciences du vivant

Jeudi 17 et vendredi 18 novembre 2016
Salle de colloque de l’IUHMSP, Lausanne

Le 3ème Forum de la recherche en histoire et études sociales de la médecine et des sciences du vivant, réunit la communauté des chercheuses et chercheurs de nos disciplines, affilié•e•s à l’IUHMSP (CHUV-UNIL) ainsi qu’au programme d’histoire de la médecine de l’IEH2 (UNIGe). Elles et ils sont convié.e.s à présenter, dans un format ramassé (communication brève ou poster), la substance de leur recherche. En privilégiant ces formes brèves de présentation, le Forum souhaite rendre compte du foisonnement, de la richesse et de la diversité des recherches menées en Suisse romande et alentour, et stimuler les interactions entre les différent•e•s chercheurs/euses.

Jeudi 17 novembre 2016

•14-18h : Communications
•18h : Séance de Posters
•19h : Apéritif

Vendredi 18 novembre 2016

•9h-12h15 : Communications
•12h15 : Repas
•14h-17h : Conférence : Teaching Medical Humanities : Scenarios, Contexts, Prospects

La conférence Teaching Medical Humanities : Scenarios, Practices, Contexts, Prospects invite cinq intervenant.e.s à faire part de leurs pratiques et perspectives d’enseignant.e.s–chercheurs/euses en sciences humaines et sociales dans des contextes médicaux spécifiques, de l’étudiant de première année au clinicien confirmé. Plutôt que de tenter une nouvelle fois de définir à priori les disciplines et le périmètre couverts par le terme de « medical humanities », il s’agira d’apporter un regard réflexif et critique sur ce que nous entendons interroger en tant que pratiques.

Public Participation in Ethical, Social and Health Policy Issues of New Genomic Technologies

8th – 9th December 2016
Brocher Foundation, Geneva

In both research and clinical settings, new genomic technologies raise important ethical, social and health policy issues. Discussion around these issues has recently culminated in identifying a central role for public engagement in helping to address ethical and policy implications of new genomics technologies. Several methods for public engagement have been implemented in the context of large-scale genomic biobank projects, and participant-centered initiatives are progressively incorporated in biomedical research practices, providing new opportunities to engage the public. Moreover, in both clinical and research settings, empirical research methods are increasingly being used to profit from public input when looking for acceptable solutions to ethical and policy conundrums. Building upon current debate about the practice and politics of public engagement with science, the workshop will bring together ELSI and STS scholars to discuss issues related to public participation in dealing with ethical, social and health policy issues of new genomics technologies. Specifically, the workshop will address three key-issues of public participation in this context: methodological issues, issues related to researchers’ embedment, and outcomes of public participation.

Invited speakers include :

  • Michael Burgess (School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia)
  • Heidi Howard (Center for Research Ethics & Bioethics, University of Uppsala)
  • Barbara Koenig (Department of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine, University of California San Francisco)
  • Kieran O’Doherty (Department of Psychology, University of Guelph)
  • Deborah Mascalzoni (Center for Research Ethics and Bioethics, University of Uppsala, and EURAC Bolzano)
  • Aaro Tupasela (Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies, University of Copenhagen)

Conception scientifique et organisation : G. Barazzetti (IUHMSP, CHUV et FBM/UNIL), L. Benaroyo (FBM et Ethos, UNIL), et Alain Kaufmann (Interface sciences-société, UNIL)


Le workshop est organisé en collaboration avec l’Interface science-société de l’UNIL (http://www.unil.ch/interface), et avec le soutien de la Fondation Brocher (http://www.brocher.ch).

La participation est en principe réservée aux intervenants.

Developmental programming of health and epigenetics: what role in the public arena?

University of Lausanne, Dorigny Campus
November 14-15, 2016

“Why your DNA isn’t your destiny” (Cloud 2010); “Babies born into poverty are damaged forever before birth” (McLaughlin 2012); “Epigenetics has shown that there’s no such thing as a normal human body, so how did it get hijacked by the body police?” (Guthman and Mansfield 2015); “Mother's diet during pregnancy alters baby's DNA” (Gallagher 2011); “Pregnant 9/11 survivors transmitted trauma to their children” (The Guardian 2011); “Society don’t blame the mothers” (Richardson et al. 2014); “Poisoned Inheritance” (The Economist 2013); “Les Nouveaux Secrets De Notre Hérédité” (ARTE 2015); “My dad survived the Holocaust - how can it be that I'm the one fighting for life?” (The Telegraph 2015). These resounding – and very much mixed – headlines are only few among the examples of how epigenetic inheritance and developmental programming of health are currently being introduced to the public.

The Conference ‘Developmental programming of health and epigenetics: what role in the public arena?’ aims at engaging scientists from different fields (from molecular biology, to gestational and paediatric medicine, to epidemiology) working around epigenetics, in order to explore the potential of this knowledge to intervene upon public discourses of reproduction, parenting and intergenerational responsibility.

In doing so, the conference will build upon the current work of the SNSF-funded project PaRED -Parental Responsibilities, Epigenetics and DOHaD (Decision N°100018_162873/1), which gathers researchers from different domains of biomedical and social sciences grappling with epigenetics and its implications for reproductive, perinatal and paediatric care. Thanks to the variety of experts it brings together, PaRED is strongly connected to the international network of biomedical scientists and researchers currently contributing to the uptake of epigenetics in public health, healthcare and the wider society.

Addressing epigenetics at the intersection of science and society from within the scientific community – and from the different perspectives it embeds – will enable us to unpack the distinct societal usages that different disciplinary approaches envisage when it comes to knowledge-production of epigenetically acquired, inheritable traits. Evidences of intergenerational epigenetic inheritance are in fact understood in different, if not adversarial ways among researchers. For some, who have long advocated that epigenetic inheritance should be taken seriously, this seems to be a vindication of the science they have tried to establish for a long time. For those in search of a ‘causal’ explanation for epidemiological evidences that early-life experiences determine later wellbeing and health, this seems to represent an opportunity to establish the whole molecular conduit behind long-standing epidemiological findings and correlations. For some others, these preliminary data are important in that they may rebalance the burden of responsibility for the health of the unborn between mothers and fathers, and should thus be most welcomed. Finally, for some others, this knowledge is finally tearing down the distinction between the natural and social sciences, or is all the more important to disentangle and unify the two for the sake of addressing the future challenges for human health and wellbeing.

Making sense of this complex tapestry underlying  the public appreciation of epigenetic inheritance and developmental programming is the main aim of this Conference. To this purpose, the event very much invites the participation of epigenetic scientists and researchers, policy makers, clinician representatives, patient organizations and ELSI scholars, who can jointly contribute to define the critical issues and promises that will emerge from the scrutiny of scientific developments in epigenetics and their imagination of the future of civil societies.
