The Imagine organization

The day-to-day coordination of research activities on genetic diseases and the integration of this research within Necker Children’s Hospital is performed by the Imagine Institute’s administrative staff and is supported by an IHU Council comprising representatives of the research laboratories, the Clinical Research Centre, the Biotherapy Clinical Research Centre and the clinical departments and the Director of the hospital’s IRNEM research institute.

The Executive committee has a strategic mission, including decision-making on scientific policy, changes to laboratories and core facilities (together with the IRNEM), recruitment of new groups and support for the development of the Clinical Research Center. The executive committee is also in charge of preparing an action plan (approved by the institute’s Board) and its implementation within the defined budget. The IHU’s mission includes the development of novel educational programs. Another important mission of the IHU is technology transfer. The SAB has been asked to design a charter for collaboration with life science companies.
