Margaret Haugh's skills and experiences are multiple and complementary. In addition to her background as a biochemist, she acquired experience in clinical research methodology during the years she spent in the research department I headed. Her role in writing reports and articles for publication trained her in medical writing on the one hand, and the intricacies of scientific publication on the other. She performed this role very well, as the team's list of publications shows. In addition, she participated in several research projects on the transmission of biomedical knowledge to the end users, practising physicians. This is how she came to accompany me in the adventure of the Cochrane Collaboration. After being the linchpin of the French Cochrane Centre, she played an independent and important role in this organisation. She increased her experience in the transmission of knowledge and refined her knowledge of the circuits of this transmission. This experience was further enhanced by her participation in international networks on medical publishing. Who could be better suited to her current job?
