2017 Annual report is out!
- The 150th anniversary of the birth of Marie Curie. To pay tribute to its founder but also to remind us that her struggle remains an issue of vital importance, Institut Curie conducted a major poster campaign from October 17 to November 23 at the gare de Lyon and gare Montparnasse train stations in Paris, on the Paris region buses and in the media, with spots provided free of charge by our partners. At the heart of this campaign lies a strong message: “the fight goes on”. Three words that remind us that the fight of Marie Curie - a pioneer in the fight against cancer - today remains a burning issue and that science is meaningful only when it serves humanity.
- In 2017, seven new research teams joined Institut Curie to work on a variety of themes.
- Last of all, 2017 was a year of transition, with the departure of the Director of the Hospital Group in early March, and the start of Pierre Fumoleau's term in early September. The medical project was reviewed in order to extend the benefit of Institut Curie's medical expertise even more broadly, and continue to roll out international patient pathways.
This annual report also provides an opportunity to thank the support of our donors: in 2017, Institut Curie was supported by the generosity of 204 000 donors, 32 sponsorship partners and 130 acts of generosity in France, though this generosity naturally extends beyond its borders.
