The Institute’s“from fundamental research to innovative resources are used to create an innovation-friendlypatient care” - a model which is just as environment which allows patients to benefit fromforward thinking now as it was in 1909, high-quality healthcare as rapidly as possible.the Institut Curie operates one of thelargest cancer research centers in Europe Research and innovationas well as two hospitals providingstate-of-the-art cancer care. The multidisciplinary, fundamental research performed at the Institut Curie seeks to understand the complex mechanisms which operate in both normal and cancer cells. The ultimate goal is to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The Institut Curie’s research Key figures 2009-2010 data groups have access to cutting-edge imaging, bioinformatics, genomics and proteomics facilities. Translational research ensures that scientific discoveries 3,000 staff are turned into medical innovations. Our researchers and medical staff work from validated concepts to develop 625 articles published in international new diagnostic techniques and safer, more effective scientific and medical journals in 2009 therapeutic approaches.
