Institut Curie

The Institut Curie is a foundation of public interest, which combines one of the the largest European oncology research center and two state-of-the-art hospitals.

Founded in 1909 on a model devised by Marie Curie and still at the cutting edge: "from fundamental research to innovative treatments", the Institut Curie has 3,000 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff.
