The making of the Institute

The Institute was created in 2009 in Picardie, northern France, a region rich with history and the location of many of the First World War battlegrounds. The Institute is dedicated to improving the quality of life of those suffering from a head and neck pathology, through Research, Training and Information.

Since its creation, the Institute has been developing its programs under the leadership of professors Bernard Devauchelle and Sylvie Testelin, and in partnership with numerous research teams from Amiens University Hospital, Jules Verne University, Compiegne Technology University, Louvain Catholic University and also the European Association of Maxillo-facial surgeons and many other partners throughout the world.

In 2021, a new building dedicated to the mission of the Institute will open its doors nearby Amiens University Hospital. Find out more about it here.
