Integrated Cancer Research Site

The SIRIC network in France

SIRIC team
In the frame of both national Cancer Plans (2009-2013 and 2014-2019) the French national cancer institute (INCa) identified 8 integrated cancer research sites (SIRICs) after evaluation by an international jury. SIRICs unite medical services, multidisciplinary research teams as well as efficient resources and shared services on one site. Together these components should permit the execution of integrated multidisciplinary research programs.

8 SIRICs: a national network

Institut Curie was endorsed in 2011 when INCa introduced the SIRIC label and then again in 2018 during the 2nd call for projects. Curie is part of the national network of 8 SIRICs coordinated by INCa:

  • LYriCAN : Centre Léon Bérard (Lyon)
  • BRIO (Bordeaux Integrated Oncology Research) : Bordeaux
  • SIRIC Montpellier Cancer : Montpellier
  • SOCRATE : Institut Gustave Roussy (Villejuif)
  • CARPEM (CAncer Research for PErsonalized Medicine) : AP-HP combining the following university hospitals : Georges Pompidou European Hospital, Cochin/Hôtel-Dieu Hospital and the hematology department at Necker Hospital
  • ILIAD (Imaging and Longitudinal Investigations to Ameliorate Decision making in multiple myeloma and breast cancer) : Nantes University Hospital
  • CURAMUS (Cancer United Research Associating Medicine, University & Society) : Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital group (Paris)
  • SIRIC Curie : Institut Curie (Paris)

The SIRICs are endorsed for 5 years and have a mission of:

  1. Conducting a triple mission of integration, structuring and application to conduct research that is applicable to the general population and people affected by cancer
  2. Reinforce the level of creativity and international competition of research work conducted by teams on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers

National collaborative projects

The SIRICs have been collaborating on structuring national projects since 2012. The OSIRIS project which is establishing an inter-center clinical and biological data interoperability system is an example of one of these collaborations. An immunology and immunotherapy network was also created. These national projects include non-SIRIC partners.
