Organ transplantation repairs broken human being. It is among the most promising techniques to repair any single damaged part of a body in the near future. The INSERM U1248 IPPRITT unit is part of the hospital-university “Survival oPtimization in ORgan Transplantation” (FHU SUPORT) federation.

Owing to its translational research strategy, as led by clinicians, biologists, pharmacologists and physical-chemists, IPPRITT has developed both basic and clinical research programmes and tools to improve transplant patient care. The findings (mainly in pharmacology) are transferred to the clinics, aiming at the development of personalized medicine.
