Toulouse, France

The IUCT-Oncopole, as a cancer care, research and training center in Toulouse, gathers the expertise of 1,800 professionals on a single site labeled "Comprehensive Cancer Center".

It combines several state-of-the-art clinical facilities for the treatment of cancer with a world-class research infrastructure, on an integrated campus that brings together public and private stakeholders, including industrial partners. The IUCT-Oncopole, which includes the Claudius Regaud Institute (ICR) and several teams from the Toulouse University Hospital, treats more than 10,000 new patients every year, and more than one in eight patients is enrolled in clinical studies. Its missions are providing the highest standards of cancer care, research and teaching. The strength of this model, a pioneer in France, lies in pooling the skills of the care and research teams who work together on a daily basis so patients can benefit from a comprehensive care offer at the cutting edge of innovation. Most of the basic and translational research teams are guided by dual expertise, medical and scientific, a powerful driver of innovation for the treatment research continuum.

Since its opening in 2014, unprecedented research projects have been recognized and published in prestigious scientific journals, clinical research has doubled and patient care has begun its revolution to meet the new challenges of cancer care, while recent discoveries are now opening up new therapeutic perspectives to prevent and cure cancers in an ever-more personalized way.

In 2021, 36 880 patients have been treated at IUCT-Oncopole and 58 442 radiotherapy sessions have been provided.
