Frédéric Vagneron


I am a historian, assistant professor at the Department for the History of Life-sciences and Health at the University of Strasbourg, and member of the SAGE (Sociétés, Acteurs, Gouvernement en Europe) research-unit. My research focuses on the history of medicine and health since the 19th century, combining local, national and international scales.

My doctoral research has dealt with the history of influenza in France. At the University of Zürich, as a research and teaching assistant at the chair of the history of medicine, my investigations turned to the history of the relationship between human and animal health, from a perspective of the history of knowledge and public action.

In the context of AMAGRI, I am conducting research on the history of international regulations on the problem of antibiotic resistance in animal husbandry.
