Rodolphe Thiébaut is professor of Public Health and Biostatistics at the University of Bordeaux. He leads a research group (SISTM – Statistics in Systems Biology and Translational Medicine) devoted to the modelling and analysis of high-dimensional data mainly applied to immunology through the French Vaccine Research Institute (http://www.vaccine-research-institute.fr). This group, which is embedded in the INSERM U1219 Research Centre (http://www.bordeaux-population-health.center/), has been recognized as an INRIA project team since January 2015 (http://www.inria.fr/equipes/sistm). Its translational research starts with immunological questions and ends with the development of statistical methods for the collection and analysis of high-dimensional datasets generated in this domain. He is the director of the department of medical information at the Bordeaux hospital. He leads also the Graduate’s program Digital Public Health that includes a Master in Public Health data science.
