A cardiologist by training, he was until recently an Emeritus Professor of Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Claude Bernard Lyon 1, and has been a Scientific Director at the French Institute for Health and Medical Research (Inserm), advisor to the General Surgeon and is still a member of a number of scientific societies in Europe and the United States.

His academic research activities focused on cellular biology, clinical trials, clinical pharmacology and clinical research methodology.

Jean-Pierre has been a member of various regulatory affairs committees:

  • AMM Committee from 1976 to 1987 (formerly Commission de Revision des Dictionnaires de Spécialités)
  • Commission de Transparence from 1990 to 1994

Jean-Pierre is one of the founding fathers of systems medicine, together with Leroy HOOD and Denis NOBLE. He has published more 300 peer-reviewed papers and contributed to major advances in medicine, such as the discovery of the Effect Model law. He took a leading role in laying the conceptual and methodological foundations for clinical trials and meta-analysis.

He has founded the first French Cochrane center (a global independent network of researchers, healthcare practitioners and patients from more than 130 countries who work together to improve healthcare decision-making) and EUDIPHARM, a European Education Center of Excellence in Pharmaceutical Medicine, consisting in a network of 20 Universities or Institutes representing 11 European member states.

In 1988, Jean Pierre BOISSEL has co-founded one of the first CROs globally to set up a computer-based on-site system to collect and control clinical trials data.
