Research programs.

United under the umbrella of the Research team EA7516 Chimere of the University Picardie Jules Verne, the scientists and surgeons-scientists of the Institute develop research programs in collaboration with numerous national and international teams.

Focusing on 6 distinct disciplines, the researchers of the Institute lead translational, fundamental and multidisciplinary research programs in order to develop new ways to diagnose, prevent and cure head and neck pathologies.

The research areas

Personalized medicine

Analyze the genome to personalize cancer therapies.

Surgical sciences and robotic surgery

Improve the effectiveness of surgeries with new approaches and techniques.

Social sciences

Analyze and understand how we view and react to facial differences.

Facial movements and functions

Measure, understand and build a model of facial movements in order to personalize treatments.

Imaging and Morphology sciences

Develop imaging protocols and software to better observe and understand pathological processes

Cell engineering

Create new biomaterials to replace loss of tissue.

The Research Team

CHIMERE (CHirurgie, IMagerie et REgénération tissulaire de l’extrémité céphalique – Caractérisation morphologique et fonctionnelle) is the name of the University Picardie Jules Verne Research team that the Institute’s researchers belong to.
