Foundation: 1936

Mission: The purpose of the IRCL is to promote cancer research. It uses the responsiveness and flexibility of decision making offered by a foundation to anticipate and accompany scientific and technical developments. Its primary mission is to support excellent fundamental research, which is essential for the advancement of knowledge and the identification of new therapeutic avenues. It provides special support to young researchers, emerging scientific projects and technological innovation. It encourages the federation of skills around ambitious and innovative projects. The implementation of a multidisciplinary approach involving doctors, biologists and physicists is one of its priorities. Its teams aim to become an international reference in the development of microsystems applied to cancer research. It has a permanent concern to transfer the results of fundamental research for the benefit of patients. Its teams contribute to the progress of precision cancer medicine by characterizing and evaluating new biological markers useful for diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic choices. It supports its teams in their efforts to enhance the economic value of their results, particularly in the field of therapeutic innovation. The IRCL carries out, with the managers of its research teams, an active technology watch to identify new high-level scientific equipment necessary for cutting-edge research. It mobilises its Partnership and Sponsorship Committee to finance the acquisition of this equipment.
