Guaranteeing a continuum between research and care
Gustave Roussy brings together the skills which are required to carry out high quality research in oncology. This integrates fundamental, clinical and translational research, so ensuring that the continuum between research and care leads to new therapies and advances in diagnosis for patients.
Clinical research carried out at Gustave Roussy covers research in diagnostic techniques, in therapy, in psycho-oncology, sociology, health economics and any research involving patients.
Responsibility for its five programmes is divided between the Institute’s committees and departments:
- The development of new anti-cancer agents and bio-markers of their effectiveness, which depends on high quality basic research
- The development of immunological cancer therapy
- To test treatments which employ targeting by a biological approach or by imaging
- To assess the psychosocial and health economics effects of innovation, and novel methods of managing patients and those close to them
- To develop new technology to improve local and regional treatment methods
