L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Janelle is a PhD student in the Global Health Governance Group at the University of Edinburgh, housed at the Usher Institute for Population Health Sciences. Her primary research interest is in how policymakers define 'success' for global health and infectious disease control programmes. Specifically, she is studying success through a case study of the history and legacy of World Bank and World Health Organization's Onchocerciasis Control Programme (1974-2002). This effort to control the tropical disease onchocerciasis (river blindness) was the World Bank's first health programme, and has been cited as both one of the most successful public-private partnerships and health programmes in Africa. At Brocher, she will be researching the Onchocerciasis Control Programme's Chemotherapy Project, which partnered with pharmaceutical companies to performing basic research and clinical trials for onchocerciasis drugs in the 1980s. To this end, she will be working out of the World Health Organization archives, and adding a bioethical dimension to the hitsory of onchocerciasis control and public-private partnerships.



Before beginning her PhD in 2016, Janelle worked as a program manager for international disease diagnostics and biosafety programmes at the American Society for Microbiology. She also taught public health in Bangladesh, blogged for the Smithsonian Institution, and worked in infectious disease laboratories. Janelle holds a MA in the history of medicine (Newcastle University), a MSc in the epidemiology of microbial diseases (Yale University), and a BSc in both zoology and the history of science (University of Wisconsin-Madison).
