Decision-making organization

International Scientific Council

Toulouse cancer research, grouped within a network whose legal framework is the Public Interest Group (GIP) Toulouse University Cancer Institute (IUCT), has set up a unique International Scientific Board (ISC) to help structure local research and care. The current ISC is composed of 13 French and foreign members, clinicians and researchers, but other personalities may be contacted to reinforce the SAB according to the new research fields to be assessed.

The SAB’s main missions are to:

  • to advise on the scientific strategy to increase the visibility and attractiveness of the Toulouse site – to evaluate the medical-scientific activity of the research and care programs.
  • to evaluate projects submitted in response to internal AAPs (those of the IUCT, IUCT-Oncopole and CRCT, and/or the Toulouse Cancer Santé Foundation) and applications from teams on the site.

More specifically, in the context of the CRCT, the ISC has a mission to analyse and advise on the CRCT’s strategy and scientific project, on its recruitment policy, and also on the Unit’s renewal project, prior to the evaluation of the teams by the national authorities.

The ISC, by playing its role at the same time on the CRCT, the Research College of the GIP IUCT and the Toulouse Cancer Santé Foundation, has a global vision which enables it to appreciate the priorities to be supported and the initiatives to be encouraged.
