JC has been professor of intensive care for more than 25 years in France. His field of research is mechanical ventilation and physiology of respiratory failure. In 2011, he took an academic position in Geneva where he coordinated the respiratory research group with Laurent Brochard (currently St Michael Hospital, Toronto). They developed a specific lung model to investigate ventilation and circulation interaction during CPR. Since 2014, he share his working time between the Annecy’s General Hospital and Air Liquide Medical Systems to develop new solutions for ventilation during CPR. JC is member of the scientific committee of the CAVIAR group who recently described a specific model of Thiel cadavers for research on CPR. He organized the first Annecy Round Table on CPR, a meeting of international experts during physiology of cardio-ventilation and neurologic interactions was debated.
