Discover the multidisciplinary expertise of the Institut Curie, at the crossroads of medicine and technology, which offers an exclusive set of skills to apply medical technologies to the development of new products and services to improve diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
Medical technologies represent a heterogeneous set of products and services covering a very extended therapeutic and operational field: imaging analysis, diagnostics and biochips, software tools and surgical robotics, instrumentation and sensors, implants and prostheses, "e-health" supports for autonomy, etc.
At Institut Curie, doctors carry out conservative or reconstructive surgery wherever possible. The improvement of surgical techniques aids in early recovery, and helps reduce hospital stays and the number of procedures in outpatient care.
Anesthetic, Reanimation & Pain
The department is a reference in IV device application, specialized in pediatric and adult port implantation and chronic pain management.
Institut Curie aims to contribute to the continual advance of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in terms of effectiveness, safety and cost.
Radiotherapy & Radiation Biology
The birthplace of radiation therapy, Institut Curie is continuously innovating in this field. Our Protontherapy center in Orsay is the world’s N°4 and N°1 in France.
Imaging & Microscopy
Institut Curie seeks to uncover the role of physical laws in the architecture and functions of cellular systems. To this end, cross-disciplinary approaches involving physics, chemistry and biology are favoured.
Institut Curie also gathers highly sophisticated equipments and up to date technologies in advanced microscopy.
Microfluidics & « lab-on-chips »
Institut Curie develops several innovative technologies based on its expertise in complex fluids and soft matter: magnetic and convective self-assembly, flow control, non-conventional microfabrication strategies and surface treatments, high content droplet microfluidics.
Institut Curie is a founding member of Pierre-Gilles de Gennes Institute (IPGG) which gathers experts of microfluidics research from various disciplines and develop both fundamental and applied research.
