BRIO is the Integrated Cancer Research Site (SIRIC) of Bordeaux

It brings together on a single site multidisciplinary research teams working in synergy to produce new knowledge in oncology and accelerate their transfer to the benefit of patients.

 3 Programs

BRIO is one of eight INCa (Institut National du Cancer) labeled sites for 2018-2022. This second label has been attributed, inter alia, to its selection process for innovative research programs. BRIO identified 27 international experts and submitted 9 interdisciplinary research programs to them. Three programs have been selected :

Through these programs, BRIO mobilizes the skills of researchers in fields that are involved, beyond biology, in the fight against cancer :

Humanities and Social Sciences, public health, epidemiology, clinical, physical sciences, chemistry, mathematics, computer science…

 Strong patient involvement

Beyond the three research programs, BRIO wishes to give more importance to the patient in the research community, believing that this collaboration can lead to better global cancer care by promoting exchanges between patients and professionals.

A group, ASPERON & Co (Associations and Patients Engaged for Research in Oncology & Professional Community) has been created since 2016 to make this collaboration a reality. Since then, the collective has co-constructed projects and events around themes targeted by the community.
