Six University Hospital Institutes(UHI) were created in 2012 through the Future Investments Programme (FIP). UHI associate world-famous medical and scientific teams, around a structuring project, combining research, care, training and development, in a dedicated therapeutic area.
Among these six Institutes, the UHI-A-Institut du Cerveau – ICM‘s mission is to lead a project of excellence in research on diseases of the nervous system.
