Who we are
SIRIC-Curie is Institut Curie’s program which is conducted in partnership with the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
The SIRIC label
The SIRIC label is a flagship program of the cancer plan aimed at identifying and supporting "comprehensive cancer centers" in France
In order to reach this objective the SIRICs have a triple mission: integration, structuring, and use of research results :
- Mission 1: Elaborate and conduct a certain number of integrated research programs within a national and international collaborative network. The ultimate objective is to reduce the incidence of cancer and its mortality and to improve patient care.
- Mission 2: Establish the necessary infrastructure and resources to conduct research responding to the criteria of excellence, innovation, integration, multidisciplinarity and transfert to the clinic (technological platforms, research support structures, protected time for clinicians, attractiveness for new researchers etc.)
- Mission 3: Ensure the application and dissemination of results and acquired knowledge
The SIRIC label at Institut Curie
The Institut Curie was one of the first centers to receive the label, along with the Léon Bérard Center, in 2011. The label will be renewed in 2018 and 2022.
To develop these missions we rely on a steering committee, an international scientific board and a number of working groups. Details of the organization chart :
Our international scientific advisory board
This board made up of international experts advises the SIRIC on strategic orientation.
