HOSPITAL – UNIVERSITY AGREEMENT 2005, January 27
 
Poitiers is out to promote its research
 

 
Through the signing this past December 17th of a framework agreement pertaining to teaching, research and international cooperation, the hospital (CHU) and the university of Poitiers intend to reinforce their ties. Their goal is to post meaningful results from 2006 onwards.

“Poitiers must be poised to compare itself with the hospitals of neighboring regions.” Signed by Jean-Pierre Dewitte, the managing director of Poitiers Hospital, this short sentence offers a cogent illustration of the determination of major local players to display unity so as to further the regional capital’s renown – and unity means the strengthening of links with Poitiers University. The two largest public structures of the Vienne department have come together in their common decision to build a “holy alliance” around three shared themes: teaching, research and international cooperation.

As the point of departure of their equally common history, the aforementioned convention is likely, in its initial phase, to allow for “analyzing research potential in order to render it more efficacious and easily readable”, proclaimed Jean-Pierre Gesson, current president of Poitiers University. “In two or three years, we shall have identified three or four strong points, and be posting results”, retorted Jean-Pierre Dewitte. Anything you can do, I can do better… As for Roger Gil, he is hoping that “his” Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy shall serve as a meeting point for the two partners.

Promoting research

That said, it was well before 2004 that the university hospital center had been showcasing its research projects. A telltale example is the request for a European patent co-submitted by Poitiers University and the CHU. The theme? “Regulation of cutaneous plasticity by oncostatin M and interleukin-31”. At the outset of the project, one may note the presence of the Laboratoire Cytokines et Inflammation, the regional company Bioalternatives, and other French partners. Moreover, promotion is the role of the aptly named Cellule de valorisation de la Recherche of Poitiers University.

“I recently met Jean-Pierre Dewitte in order to make sure that the CHU would be part and parcel of the cell”, indicates an allusive Michel Roux, who is at the head of the structure. Resuscitation and intensive care, anesthesia, organ transplantation, leukemia, cerebral aging… In all these areas, Poitiers has solid arguments to put forward. Let us bet that the upcoming transfer of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy from the town center to the campus shall indeed allow Poitiers to “be poised to compare itself to the hospitals of neighboring regions”.
