The president’s words

« CTRS is above all a wonderful medical, pharmaceutical, industrial and human story.

From the beginning of our adventure in 2002, we wanted to work in collaboration with academic structures. Research gives rise to incredibly innovative and very highquality products. Yet, it too often stops at the clinical research stage, leaving thousands of patients without hope of a cure being found. At CTRS, our ambition is to serve as the link between these discoveries and patients. We are particularly involved in the field of rare diseases and have proved that one should not let pre-established representations stop one: it is possible to develop new treatments even when the number of patients is extremely low.

In more than fifteen years, we have signed several partnerships with the Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris, the Saint-Joseph Hospital and the Imagine Foundation. We hope that the coming years will lead to new collaborations with other academic teams in France and Europe or with other industrial structures. We will thus be able to continue to provide patients with new health products, especially when the existing therapeutic approaches are insufficient or non-existent.

I would like to thank everyone who has believed in our challenges and trusted us over the last few years, clinicians, researchers, patient organisations, partners, and of course the entire CTRS team.»
