The model of Marie Curie

  • Marie Curie, founder of Institut Curie, was attached to the seamless continuity from fundamental and clinical research to patient care. Curie Cancer maintains these dynamics and puts together leading teams in cognitive, translational and clinical research.
  • Curie Cancer offers tailor-made collaborative research projects to industrial partners, based on the internal expertise of its teams as well as the capabilities of its advanced technical platforms.
  • Curie Cancer is led by professionals with extensive experience in the pharmaceutical industry and/or biotechnology sector and thus sets up efficient collaborations with its industrial partners.

Examples of collaborative projects with industrial partners

  • Identification and validation of therapeutic targets.
  • Evaluation of drug efficiency and antitumor activity on human xenograft mice.
  • Identification of biomarkers.
  • Identification of the mechanism of drug activity in developmental medicinal chemistry.
  • Design of monoclonal antibodies against therapeutic targets.
  • Pharmacokinetic clinical studies in phase I, II or III in several types of cancer.
