Vololona Rabeharisoa  is interested in the increasing involvement of civil society organizations in scientific and technical activities. She studies the transformative effects of this involvement on the modes of production and dissemination of knowledge, and on the forms of collective mobilization. For several years, she has studied the engagement of patients’ organizations with biomedical research, the governance of health, and the development of drugs and therapeutic strategies, notably in the area of rare diseases. She continues her work by investigating the involvement of patient organizations in therapeutic innovation and in the debates on the organization of medicines markets and prices. Beyond the biomedical domain, she explores the emergence of new public issues around genomics. She recently participated in a research project on the uses of DNA fingerprints in crime investigations and criminal justice in France.
