 A reference network of excellence in clinical research


CRI-IMIDIATE is an outcome of the RIC (Rheumatisms & Inflammation Club) founded in 1995 by several rheumatologists. This network is composed of certified centers which cover France linking neighboring regions.


CRI-IMIDIATE has been recently labelled by the European program F-CRIN (French Clinical Research Investigation Network) and is connected to other structures belonging to the program such as the platform PARTNERS, the networks I-REIVAC, INNOVTE or the transversal structure ORPHANDEV…


This is an excellence clinical investigation network which structures and organizes university and industrial clinical research. CRI-IMIDIATE is also connected to the care system FAI2R which is dedicated to auto-immune and rare auto-inflammatory diseases.
