Besançon : Smart Transfuser

The idea is to develop tomorrow’s smart medical devices, making the most of the institute’s cross-thematic side to build scientific knowledge for the benefit of patients. Research, from bench to patient bed, is the major focus of CIC-IT's work. Here is a project that illustrates this: it’s the Smart Transfuser. What does it do ?

Grenoble : A robot in MRI system

In the MRI research lab of Grenoble's University Hospital Centre, groundbreaking research is under way... The stakes are high: verification of robot operation on volunteers. The robot is being clinically tested for the first time. It's the first time in virtually real conditions in a hospital MRI facility, on living, breathing people who may move about in the MRI machine.

Lille : Biosensors and e-health

Lille is home to a Centre for Clinical Investigation and Technological Innovation, or CIC-IT. But what do they actually do in this centre? Regis Logier, CIC-IT Coordinator : “Our main activity is to facilitate access to the hospital’s technical platforms, to evaluate the medical devices in general, whether they come from our lab or other labs, and also on behalf of manufacturers
