Inserm is the only public research organization in France entirely dedicated to human health. Its objective is to promote the health of all by advancing knowledge about life and disease, treatment innovation, and public health research.

Inserm has always worked closely with hospitals, universities, and other public sector institutions. The majority of its research units involve staff from different institutions, and are located close to health-care establishments and teaching centers. The success of these partnerships depends on sharing skills, attracting talent, and proximity to patients.

Inserm is a founding member and chair of Aviesan, the French National Alliance for Life Sciences and Health. Through its scientific coordination of research topics, and the operational coordination of projects and resources, Aviesan is enhancing the responsiveness and effectiveness of French science.
