Several researchers in Axis 1 have in common that they question the social norms and representations related to pregnancy and birth.
This project will pool anthropological, medical and philosophical skills that will be exercised on the basis of clinical and scientific knowledge provided by geriatric professionals.

Research in dentistry will continue through the work of young researchers already begun in the past year, and which will continue around the painful body in a qualitative and ethical perspective.
The ethics researchers intend to continue their research on the observation of the diversity of procedures for informing relatives in Europe, in the field of rare diseases.
This inter-team project will focus on a specific case where the patient's body is treated using the resources of another's body. In this case, the body is no longer simply the receptacle of treatments but becomes itself a means of treatment available to patients in a life-threatening situation (leukemia, sickle cell disease, etc.).
In the event of death, other social norms unfold because respect for the body does not disappear with death. The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has given an insight into the cultural invariants in the respect due to the body of the deceased. The duty of decency that the living recognize towards the cadaveric body is imposed even when the person has donated his or her body to science, within a recently reinforced normative framework. During the next contract, the removal of elements from the cadaveric body at the request of the judicial authorities will be the subject of a renewed deontological approach through the digitization of forensic resources.
While it will rely on the skills of established researchers in population genetics, biological anthropology and the history of epidemics, this axis also intends to open up to the skills of the "Corps, normes, santé" team in health law, ethics and odontology. Knowledge will gain in comprehensiveness through an exploration of the epidemic body in its multiple facets.
