Abstract

For the last 15 years, French university-affiliated hospitals have dramatically modified how biomedical research is conducted in France. Multidisciplinary and technically complex research projects are increasingly difficult to conduct in clinical units. To ensure quality, good clinical practice, and security, platforms dedicated to clinical research with specific staff have been implanted. These units, called Clinical Investigation Centers (CICs), are open to academic and industrial investigators working in the medical fields involving patients and healthy volunteers. The CICs' activities are always closely related to the university hospital research programs and can also serve as a tool for locally implanted clinical and fundamental research teams (INSERM). Nowadays, clinical research requires specific tools and platforms. To enhance French university hospital research efficiency and provide a more open research environment, all investigators, on-site as well as from other institutions, are invited to use these cohesive research facilities and skills to conduct protocols that are fully adapted to their needs in optimal conditions of professional clinical research.
