Company Description:

~~The Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière – ICM (Brain & Spine Institute) – is an international brain and spinal cord research center whose innovative concept and structure make it the only institute of its kind in the world. The ICM brings patients, doctors and researchers together with the aim of rapidly develop treatments for disorders of the nervous system and enable patients to benefit from them as quickly as possible.
In order to treat and, one day, cure brain and spinal cord disorders, we need large research centers with the requisite resources and structure to function as a network. The ICM fits the criteria:
● 22,000 sq. meters of laboratory space;
● 1,200 sq. meters dedicated to clinical research;
● 1,000 sq. meters dedicated to start-up incubation;
● An €67 million investment in property;
● And, most importantly, 600 researchers, engineers and technicians, hand-picked
● To meet stringent standards, working on-site on a full-time basis.

The ICM is a pole of excellence for the central nervous system, located in the heart of the largest hospital:
● Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital
● 33,000 sq. meters
● 20,000 healthcare team members
● 2,000 beds
● 100,000 patients suffering from nervous system disorders examined each year
● 4 of the 10 most-sited French neuroscientists working at this site
To build and grow the best research teams, the ICM formed an international Scientific Committee to identify and recruit top talent. Its rigorous selection process is one of the main factors guaranteeing the ICM’s scientific excellence.
Bringing patients, doctors and researchers together in one place facilitates both basic and clinical research. The aim is to shorten the time span between research and therapy, with significant benefit to patients.
The ICM is a private foundation, recognized as a public benefit organization on September 13, 2006, located on the property of a public institution, the Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital. The ICM receives financial support from governmental partners as well as private funds.
In the past, research being conducted in different fields (molecular and cellular biology, neurophysiology, cognitive sciences, therapeutic) has been too isolated. The multisdisciplinary approach taken by ICM is a vital innovation in research.
Extracting value from findings is a key issue today in scientific research. Partnerships with industry, especially in the pharmaceutical sector, give research an accelerating push.
