Congratulations to Ophélia Godin, newly recruited as a researcher at Inserm as part of Marion Leboyer’s team!

Ophélia Godin is an epidemiologist by training, recently recruited at INSERM as a CRCN researcher at the Mondor Institute for Biomedical Research in Marion Leboyer’s team “Translational Psychiatry”.

She did her thesis in Public Health at the University of Paris 11 on the cerebral modifications visible on MRI of dementia in the elderly and has since developed research work on the epidemiology of neurological and psychiatric diseases.


After being attached to the Pierre Louis Institute of Epidemiology and Public Health for 5 years, she now continues her research in the Inserm laboratory “Translational Psychiatry” (Marion Leboyer team), at the IMRB. Her research work focuses on the prevalence, origin, risk factors and consequences of somatic diseases and in particular metabolic abnormalities in individuals with psychiatric diseases.


Since 2013, she has also been involved in the implementation of the PsyCoh cohort, funded by the Investissement d’Avenir program (PIA2) and is in charge of the methodological/epidemiological aspect of the cohort. This is a cohort of individuals with bipolar disorders and schizophrenia followed over a long period of time whose objective is to characterize the different stages of the disease as well as the biological markers associated with them.
