The Center for translational science is one of the 4 transversal centers that was inaugurated in September 2014. The ultimate goal of the center is to facilitate the creation of biomedical projects between the members of the Institut Pasteur International Network and hospitals.
- Support fundamental and clinical research that will accelerate the translation of scientific breakthroughs into improved human health
- Provide access and training on state-of-the-art technical cores
- Support clinical trial development in a regulatory environment secure for both researchers and Institution
- Inspire and coordinate new translational research projects through expert project management and coordinated activities with academic hospitals and industrial partners
The center consists of :
- Clinical coordination services (activities supported by the former Pole integré de recherche Clinique, PIRC)
- Biobanking activity and healthy volunteer cohort access (coordinated by ICAReB)
- Technical cores for translational science
The Center facilitates partnerships with hospitals and with the Medical Center of the Institut Pasteur and improves access to patient samples for scientific community. It supports scientists for translational research fundraising actions and provides greater exposure of Institutional translational research activities. The center helps to overcome burdensome regulatory procedures associated with translational and clinical research. Over the next years, the Center aims to develop an academic interdisciplinary program in Translational research.
