The Friends of the ICM Circle

Cercle des amis de l'ICMIt brings together all of the grand donors of the Institute who have engaged their philanthropic power for the research on the nervous system.

WE did iT … and new challenges

A message from the Presidents

We are particularly happy to announce the creation of the Circle of Friends of the ICM. Its primary vocation consists in bringing together all the pioneer donors that have supported the ambitious idea of creating a neuroscience institute in the heart of Paris and rapidly place it among the most eminent in the world. We did it. And we are already faced with new scientific, mathematic, philosophical, physical challenges… to extend further the limits of knowledge. This is why we propose that you join the circle, YOUR circle, in which we are going to create a privileged relationship with the researchers, inform you in real time on the major scientific advances and perspectives.
It is for us, together, to rise to new challenges and help the researchers to realize their goals. Continue our human adventure, reinforced both by a new dynamics and also by new travelling companions that we will invite. Such is our common mission in this Circle: better care for and cure the diseases of the nervous system.
Thank you for your involvement.

Co-presidents of the Committee of the Friends of the ICM
