Through those programmes, BRIO calls on the skills of researchers in a wide range of fields involved in the fight against cancer :
biology, epidemiology, clinical medicine, sociology, physical sciences, chemistry, psychology, computer science, philosophy, mathematics, etc.
BRIO also stands out thanks to its strategy for bringing patients closer to and involving them in its research. It has included patients in both its Trustees Committee and its international Scientific Advisory Committee, who accompany BRIO in its management. In 2015, it also set up ASPERON & Co (Associations and Patients Committed to Oncology Research & Professional Community), a collective made up of over 100 patients, ex-patients, caregivers, volunteers from associations and professionals from the health and research community. Together, they imagine and carry out projects to improve collaboration and communication in cancer research. BRIO relies on ideas from ASPERON & Co members for its mission aimed at transferring and disseminating oncology research know-how and findings.
BRIO plays a role in structuring the cancer research community in Bordeaux and Nouvelle Aquitaine, which is currently reflected by the Oncosphere project.
