AMU, AP-HM, CIML
Each year, a large number of clinical trials are conducted by APHM clinicians alone or in partnership with industry players in biopharmaceuticals. During these trials, we assess how the immune system of the animal or the patient responds to these new treatments.
Integrated in the immunology department of the APHM, our platform is exclusively dedicated to the diagnostic and therapeutic innovation in immunology. It undertakes two complementary missions: the immuno-monitoring of assays and research training.
Each year, a large number of clinical trials are conducted by APHM clinicians alone or in partnership with industry players in biopharmaceuticals. During these trials, we assess how the immune system of the animal or the patient responds to these new treatments. This information is essential since it largely conditions the continuation or the end of the drug development, especially when it acts directly on the immune system as a cytokine or an immunotherapy antibody. In practice, we implement complex molecular and cellular assays which allow to measure all the facets of the immune response, including that of the new cell populations such as Innate Lymphoid cells (ILCs).
Our platform also acts as a full-scale test bed for Aix-Marseille Université students. For several years, we have been welcoming physician trainees, pharmacists and scientists who join our research education programs as a part of their second year of Master or PhD. The state-of-the-art expertise of our structure, our proximity to APHM clinical services and our continuous interactions with the CIML research teams and the other platforms of MI offer our students a unique environment in Europe. It is an important part that we intend to develop and which is for this reason at the heart of Marseille Immunopole’s strategic plan.#clinic #research
For many years our service at the Timone Hospital has collaborated with researchers including the " Natural Killer Cells and Innate Immunity" team of Eric VIVIER .
Today, Marseille Immunopôle and their experts and platforms provide an outstanding multidisciplinary scientific environment for thoracic immuno-oncology research.
New molecules currently under development at Innate Pharma and in new companies in Marseille reflect the teams' dynamism and local potential.
The thrust of MI is the ability of Marseille researchers, clinicians and industrials to play as a team.
