Research Continuum

Knowledge is at the heart of all Inserm research projects: beginning from what is already known, scientists ask questions, construct hypotheses, and develop experiments that will generate new knowledge. From benchtop to bedside, Inserm is involved across the research continuum, so that it can transform these advances into progress in human health.

The knowledge generated by Inserm laboratories leads not only to the development of new therapeutic and diagnostic strategies, but also enables the formulation of recommendations for implementing public health policies. More widely, this knowledge is disseminated throughout society as a whole, so that everyone can be made aware of such discoveries, and may in their turn ask new questions that will lead to new advances.
