BRIO has already established several joint initiatives in clinical and basic research with expert oncology centres. As such, we collaborate with the other SIRICs and several academic partners in a variety of ways:
- Clinical research partnerships to carry out trials or implement clinical-biological databases (geriatric oncology, sarcomas, glioblastomas, urological cancers, etc.).
The UroCCR biological collection and database created by Prof. Jean-Christophe Bernhard (urological surgeon at Bordeaux University Hospital) is a key clinical-biological database for all the translational research projects in onco-urology and included in the COMMUCAN programme.
- Basic and translational research projects (Nouvelle-Aquitaine oncology network, Cancéropôle Grand Sud-Ouest, European consortiums, national networks such as the sarcoma or geriatric oncology network).
A joint initiative in translational research was set up between the Bordeaux teams and the Montpellier SIRIC on the topic of colon cancer using the Montpellier clinical-biological database.
Research staff mutualised between the Institut Gustave Roussy and Marseille/Bordeaux in Human and Social Sciences, partnership with the Cordeliers Research Centre (team led by Prof. Hervé Fridman and Catherine Sautès-Fridman) and Prof. Italiano’s early trials/sarcoma team.
Joint initiative with the Basque Country and Navarre within the ONCONAEN network (geriatric oncology).
- Highlighting the Bordeaux platforms, combining technical expertise and clinical-biological know-how:
Immunology at the Bordeaux University Hospital (CHU)
Biopathology at Institut Bergonié
- Local experts are invited for regional, national and international conferences. We also regularly invite local or national experts to uphold strong ties with French, European and international partners in cancer research.
Oncosphère conferences, interventions by SIRIC representatives from George-Pompidou European Hospital (HEGP), Lyon and Pitié-Salpétrière in “BRIGHT DAYS”, UroCCR Scientific Day, Early Trials Day at Institut Bergonié, etc.
