CALYM Carnot Institute, a French academic research and development organization in the field of lymphoma, will hold its 3rd CALYM Scientific and Partnering Day for its industrial partners on Oct. 17 in Paris.
The event will offer pharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostics, and imaging companies an opportunity to meet with lymphoma experts to discuss research and development partnering needs. CALYM researchers will also present the latest results from lymphoma studies, from the identification of new therapeutic targets to Phase 3 pivotal clinical trials.
The event will take place as part of CALYM’s new structure, following its recent Carnot Institute accreditation for excellence in scientific research given by the French government, and will include participants from several countries.
On July 6, CALYM was accredited in its new scope: the LYSA and LYSARC associations, which are focused on bringing lymphoma specialists together to promote basic and clinical research, and to improve disease prevention and management, and the treatment of lymphoma patients.
CALYM was one of the 29 French research institutes to receive this accreditation, out of 45 applicants. All Carnot Institutes benefit from the contribution of their partnering research revenues via the National Research Agency, up to a budgetary amount of €57 million in 2016.
“This is an important new step for the institute, which will have a significant impact towards making progress in lymphoma research. Our scientific and partnering day is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our know-how in this field,” Pascal Deschaseaux, chief executive officer of CALYM, said in a press release.
A goal now is to foster the preclinical/clinical research continuum regarding lymphoma therapies and diagnostics, notably via translational research and development projects, as well as its early stage clinical trials platform.
Attendance for the scientific and partnering day is free, but registration via email is necessary before Sept. 30. Registrations are made on a first-come, first-served basis, space being limited to 200 participants. The event will be held in French but translations will be provided.
The event will take place at Espace Van Gogh, 62, Quai de la Rapée.
