International partnerships for cutting-edge research
For a number of years, Institut Mérieux and its companies have been developing international partnerships with public and private academic researchers and hospital community representatives. This strategy has led to a number of scientific collaboration agreements and the establishment of joint research units.
Joint research units
Joint units were created with hospitals in France and China:
- 2 bioMérieux/Hospices Civils de Lyon joint research units: sepsis and the risk of infection in cancer and immunosuppressed patients.
- Institut Mérieux/Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center joint research unit: tumor and immunity markers.
