Support for researchers and clinicians

Support for the development of research

The Foundation supports research teams in the development of their project at all stages, regardless of the nature of the project or the targeted pathology.

Its support covers the field of translational research and brings together the expertise necessary for the continuity between basic research and clinical research. Its action is free of charge and without sharing intellectual property and is based on the following axes:

Intellectual Property

In order to reach the market and benefit the patient, any innovation must undergo an often long and costly development process. Consequently, it is essential to protect the invention in order to have exclusive rights.

The Foundation directs the client to the development structure in order to establish a declaration of invention, patent and transfer the innovation.

Search for financing

Funding from the Foundation's calls for projects complements other sources of funding for pilot or seed projects, the implementation and validation of which may prove fundamental to the deployment of major projects.

The Foundation directs researchers to its calls for projects or to other sources of funding depending on the nature of the projects (AFM, FRM, ANR, E-Rare, PHRC, PRTS, etc.). It also assists in the writing of the presentation file.

Medico-regulatory assistance

The goal of research is to find a drug candidate that is active in a given disease. The development of this drug candidate into a medicine goes through several stages governed by strict and complex regulations.

The Foundation assists in assessing the appropriateness of filing according to the stage of development of the project, in finding providers specializing in regulatory affairs and in establishing a relationship with regulatory agencies.

Putting people in touch with each other

  • With academic or private partners depending on the needs identified: patent/intellectual property experts, CROs (contract research organizations), formulation experts, etc.
  • With drug companies or investment funds to promote research results, particularly through the POC Club.
