Marie Le Clainche Piel

Sociologist, researcher, CNRS

Contact: marie.le-clainche-piel(at)



I am a sociologist and CNRS fellow. I work mainly on the practices, technologies, scientific theories and policies of the circulation of body materials – be they human remains, organs, cells, gametes.

My current research project questions the introduction of algorithms in health care systems and the distribution of organs in France, the UK and the US.

As an elected member of the French network for the sociology of health, medicine and disability (AFS RT19) I am committed to the dissemination and representation of this global field of research.
