Taking action, thinking, learning, walking, dreaming… none of these would be possible without the brain. Paris Brain Institute is an international scientific and medical research center located in the heart of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris.
It brings together doctors, researchers, patients and entrepreneurs with the aim of understanding the brain and developing treatments for the diseases that affect it so that patients can benefit from them as quickly as possible. This original and unique model was imagined at the time the Institute was created in 2010 by Professors Gérard Saillant, Yves Agid and Olivier Lyon-Caen.
The watchmaker has fostered the work of Paris Brain Institute with active support since 2012. Richard Mille made a personal commitment in 2019, when he became a member of the Institute’s Campaign Committee. This year, the brand doubled down with the creation of the Richard Mille Donors’ Club.
Paris Brain Institute’s approach is founded on the principle of personalised, preventive, participatory and predictive medicine. At the forefront of brain science, the Institute is ranked second among the 35 international institutions active in the field of neurological research. With its start-up incubator, it is the first innovation accelerator dedicated to disorders and health of the nervous system in France and aspires to become the leading hub for therapeutic innovations devoted to the brain in Europe.
The brain is therefore still largely unknown and the development of new treatments is a real challenge. Scientific and therapeutic research is imperative. It requires a space to bring together knowledge and to create a dialogue between disciplines. These exchanges contribute to the expansion of knowledge and the design of new treatments. Donor support is essential to move forward and accelerate innovation.
