Clinical research projects




To meet the challenges of Neuroscience research, the LabEx BRAIN brings together teams that have decided to work in collaboration on multidisciplinary themes. This call for proposals aims to support innovative transversal or translational research. It is specifically dedicated to clinical research projects involving one or more Bordeaux teams: based on the results obtained by a Bordeaux team (fundamental, preclinical or clinical research), the LabEx BRAIN proposes to finance human trials on healthy or sick subjects, whether physiological, physiopathological, diagnostic or therapeutic, excluding industrial trials.
