lucas-morin_webLucas Morin is a doctoral student at the Aging Research Center (ARC), a division from the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society at Karolinska Institutet.
His doctoral research is focused on the use of potentially inadequate medications in older people near the end of life.

Parallel to his thesis, he also conducts research in the following areas:
• The aggressiveness of cancer care in the last months of life
• The quality of end-of-life care in nursing homes
• Polyphamarcy and inappropriate drug use in older people

Before joining the Aging Research Center, Lucas was the Director of the National Observatory on End-of-Life Care in France. As part of a joint initiative with the National Authority for Health, he also coordinated the 2011-2013 national strategy “Quality of End-of-Life Care”.
