The supervisory bodies of the Brain Institute – AP-HP, CNRS, INSERM and Sorbonne University – have been present at the Institute’s side since its creation and are now helping it to develop through financial and human investment. Its researchers, its “strike force”, are mostly from its supervisory bodies and work within the Institute, where they benefit from cutting-edge technological research platforms, a high-performance Biological Resource Centre and the development of multidisciplinary translational research.
Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris – AP-HP
As a public health establishment under the authority of the City of Paris, the AP-HP provides care, teaching, medical research, prevention, health education and emergency medical assistance. The AP-HP has 38 hospitals or hospital groups as well as Hospitalisation A Domicile (HAD). The Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris has given the ICM a 4,400 m2 plot of land on the site of the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital.
The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique is a public research organisation (a public scientific and technological establishment under the supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research). It produces knowledge and puts this knowledge at the service of society.
The CNRS is the main multidisciplinary research organisation in France and conducts research in all scientific, technological and societal fields.
With more than 32,000 people (researchers, engineers and technicians), the CNRS is present throughout France.
The National Institute of Health and Medical Research is the only French public research organisation entirely dedicated to human health. Its researchers study all diseases of the nervous system, from the most common to the rarest. Inserm is therefore a natural partner for the ICM.
4,000 researchers and teacher-researchers and 3,000 engineers, technicians, administrative and service staff currently work at Sorbonne University, which has 30,000 students.
