Obstetrical, Perinatal and Pediatric Epidemiology Research Team

EPOPé is a research team in the Center for Research on Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne Paris Cité (CRESS) at the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and the Paris-Descartes University.
Our research focuses on the health of women during and after pregnancy, the health of children as it relates to pregnancy and birth, and general pediatrics in France and internationally.
We have three main objectives:

  • to assess practices and health policies and their implementation in the population
  • to identify the determinants of perinatal complications for mothers and babies
  • to study the influence of events of the perinatal period (for example, prenatal exposures, preterm birth, or congenital anomalies) on the health and long-term development of children and on the health and well-being of mothers and families.
