In charge of the axis “Systems toxicology”

Karine Audouze is Associate Professor in Systems biology and Bioinformatics (University of Paris Diderot), and works in the MetaTox group at Paris Descartes. Her main research interest is the development of computational systems biology and predictive toxicology models to investigate the effects of exposure to environmental chemicals on human health. Her teaching activities are complementary to her scientific skills (from chemoinformatics to bioinformatics).


Karine Audouze is a systems biologist with a background in computational chemistry. After a PhD in Chemistry/Bioinformatics at the University of Orléans, France (2001), she worked six years as a computational scientist within pharmaceutical industries (in the medicinal chemistry area) in Denmark, and seven years as Associate Professor in integrative systems biology at the Technical University of Denmark. Since 2014, she’s part of Diderot University.

Her expert knowledge is in the development of network biology and predictive toxicology models by integrating heterogeneous data types. She builds upon a solid background in statistical analyses, data mining, omics analysis and development & use of large-scale databases. She is now using these techniques to ascertain the potential links between environmental chemicals and adverse health outcomes and the potentials for gene-environment interactions. She is/has been involved as a scientist in several national and international projects (EU and US), where her work is focused on providing computational analysis and models to support the integration and interaction between wet- and dry labs.
