It tied the 1st place in a ranking put together by an international jury in April 2011 for “Investissements d’Avenir” financed by the French Grand Loan. Facing the IRCAD building, the IHU Strasbourg will combine the know-how of medical experts, scientists and industrials in order to create a unique site for healthcare, research and training.
