3 million people in France are affected by genetic diseases and 30,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. Genetic diseases are complex, disabling and very difficult to diagnose. The unknown is daunting. When we are unable to identify an illness, the lives of whole families can be turned upside down.
Imagine specializes in genetic diseases. 1,000 of the best doctors, researchers and healthcare staff work together under one roof to discover new and more effective treatments, provide expert treatment and care, listen, and help ease the loneliness and isolation that can afflict families dealing with genetic diseases. A light in the darkness
Help accelerate the discovery of new treatments and build the genomic medicine of the future.
At the cutting edge in nephrology, neurodevelopment, immunology-infectology-gastrology, hematology and development cardiology, Imagine Institute is also working on a major artificial intelligence program to mine clinical and biological data and explore as yet poorly understood aspects of DNA.
Our 2028 goal is to double research programs on disease mechanisms in order to double the number of children diagnosed and treated.
