What makes us unique
Created by the will of four partners, the Institute of Myology, the AFM-Telethon, Paris hospitals (l’Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) and Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC) I-Motion is a pediatric clinical trial platform for neuromuscular diseases. It aims to meet the new needs created by the emergence of therapies for diseases long considered incurable and mainly affecting children.
The I-Motion Institute, located at the Trousseau Pediatric Hospital of AP-HP (Lemariey Building), allows young patients to have the best care conditions, in a suitable, warm and secure environment. It has access to the technical platforms, research structures and clinical services of the Trousseau hospital.
