A graduate from a business school, the Paris Institute of Political Science (Science Po Paris) and the University Paris Descartes (Masters degree-DEA, in medical ethics), Marianne Perreau-Saussine became hospital director in 1999. She has over 15 years experience in the hospital sector, at the local (CH Mantes-la-Jolie), regional (ARH Ile-de-France, ARS Ile-de-France) and national level (National Cancer Institute, Interministerial Mission for the Fight against Cancer). She has thus driven significant hospital reorganisations, development of public health programs and implementation of structures in the area of healthcare organisation and research. By joining the Institute of Myology, she wished to join the world of research and the development of innovations, and to engage with families to overcome diseases.
The General Secretary is assisted by a coordinating team of about ten people who manage computer, documentation, accounting, HR, audiovisual and logistic questions.
