Cancer Research

Institut Curie conducts cancer research in order to:

Cancer Research


  • Understand the mechanisms of cancer development
  • Facilitate the transition from basic research to clinical application
  • Develop innovative therapeutic and diagnostic techniques

Biologists, chemists, physicists, and computer scientists: our multidisciplinary teams have made the Institut Curie Research Centre a leader in cancer research in Europe. Its teams are divided into 14 research units that work closely with the CNRS, Inserm, and various universities (Paris Sciences et Lettres, Paris-Descartes, Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris Sud, and more).

Our research is organized according to 4 priorities:

  • An innovative, interdisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment
  • Developing highly technical platforms
  • Sharing knowledge
  • Training
