Why support the ICM?

Open / close summary

THE ICM IS A RESPONSE TO A CHALLENGE TO PUBLIC HEALTH

1 person in 8 is directly concerned by diseases of the nervous system (Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, brain tumours, paraplegia, depression, …). And with the aging of the population, this figure will increase even further. Prevent, cure, care for patients with these diseases that affect millions of persons is our challenge. A challenge that we can only meet WITH YOU and the mobilisation of everyone.

THE ICM MOBILISES INTERNATIONAL TEAMS OF EXCELLENCE

After rigorous selection of high level talents, we have surrounded ourselves with the most eminent experts in the world on diseases of the brain and spinal cord.

The ICM IS A UNIQUE MODEL FOR PATIENTS

In the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital we associate, on the same site, physicians, researchers and patients. The interval that separates a scientific discovery from the development of a new treatment is thus considerably reduced. The patients benefit more rapidly.

THE ICM ACCELERATES RESEARCH

Our organisation favours transversal and multidisciplinary collaborations among specialists in different domains: a factor that enables them to “transcend” their competencies and produce better results.

THE ICM HAS EXCEPTIONAL CORE FACILITIES

We dispose of avant-garde core facilities and an exceptional centre of biological resources, resources that concur for a better understanding of diseases of the brain and spinal cord.

THE ICM ENHANCES THE VALUE OF RESEARCH

Added value is at the heart of research; the partnerships established with industry, notably the pharmaceutical industry, leads to a veritable acceleration of research.

THE ICM IS AT THE CROSSROADS OF NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH

The ICM is integrated in a world-wide network associating the great neuroscience centres in the realization of joint research programs. The ambition of the studies performed requires close collaborations with French and international research centres.
