Within the SIRICs community, BRIO has the specificity to be centered around historically and geographically separated research centers (University of Bordeaux, Institut Bergonié and University Hospital Center (CHU) from Bordeaux). These organizations have always collaborated together on specific aspects but their objectives are different due to their role and function, and their research capabilities are unique.
BRIO has identified 7 strategic development axes which are essential to the success of the 6 integrated research programmes. The objective of the axes is to strengthen the development of new activities required for translational research, to launch shared platforms and to federate research teams around common themes. The ultimate goal of these axes is to lead to the creation of dedicated research or technological platforms available to the Bordeaux cancer research scientific community.
