There are more 2000 head and neck pathologies.
Birth defects, traumas as a result of an accident, of violence, cancer, paralysis…Many times, these pathologies have long-lasting severe functional and aesthetical impacts on patients : they may not be able to chew, swallow, talk, smile…sometimes they may not be able to recognize themselves.
The Institute Faire Faces was created to help those patients, with Scientific Research being a key component for the mission.
The Research programs are based on two principles: better understand in order to offer better treatments. To better understand translates into capturing the morphological and functional caracterization of healthy, diseased and reconstructed tissue. To offer better treatments means developing personalized diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
A multi-disciplinary research laboratory
CHIMERE is the name given to the Research Team affiliated with Jules Verne University, and which brings together 50 surgeons and researchers. This multi-disciplinary team is the heart of the Institute Faire Faces Research Programs, organised along 6 lines of research.
