The project CARPEM is managed by Prs PIERRE LAURENT-PUIG, MICHAELA FONTENAY and WOLF-HERVE FRIDMAN.
PR PIERRE LAURENT-PUIG: CARPEM Director
Pierre Laurent-Puig is oncology Professor at the Paris Descartes University Medical School (PDUMS). Since 2004, he is also director of the INSERM laboratory U1147 (former 775) “Medicine, Pharmacogenomics and Therapeutic Optimization” at Paris Descartes University. He works within the Department of Biology at the European Georges Pompidou Hospital Paris, where he is responsible for the Clinical Oncogenetic Unit. He is the scientific director of Cancéropôle Île-de-France.
“The three research projects developed thin the CARPEM are in close relation. The CARPEM will allow important progress in personalized medicine by integrating genetical, immulological and ethical dimensions. By gathering the different research teams, this project carried by AP-HP has a unique capacity to favour the transfer from personalized medicine to clinical practice and make it a reality for those suffering from cancer”. Pr Pierre Laurent-Puig (WebZine of APHP)
PR MICHAËLA FONTENAY : CARPEM deputy director
Michaëla Fontenay is Professor of Hematology at Paris Descartes University – Medical School and responsible of the Laboratory of Biological Hematology of “Hôpitaux Universitaires Paris Centre”.
Her research activities focused on the pathophysiology of myelodysplastic syndromes within the Inserm unit U1016 in the team “Normal and pathological hematopoïesis” at Cochin Institut.
The administrative governance of CARPEM project is handled by Aurore Hattabi for the scientific coordination and Carina Binet for the administrative and financial side.
Yannick Ladeiro, PhD: CARPEM Secretary General

He then joined Inception Sciences in order to set up an annex of this American drug development company in Paris. At the end of this mission, he trained in project management in a start-up company (Design Your Cube) by organizing the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube competition and by validating a university course at Centrale Lille. He then led and coordinated the HTE program (Cancer Plan 2014-2019) alongside Jessica Zucman-Rossi before joining CARPEM in early 2020.

It gathers ones a month and defines the scientific strategy, the financial management of the CARPEM as well as all the items that might have an incidence on the management of the CARPEM. Structure of the Committee :
– Program 1 : Metabolism, Genetics, Immunity & Environment (Jessica Zucman-Rossi ,Guido Kroemer)
– Program 2 : Cancer heterogeneity related to tumor and host diversity for patient management (Valerie Taly, Eric Tartour)
– Program 3 : Dynamic consent and health democracy in CARPEM (Marie-France Mamzer, Mathilde Touvier)
The CARPEM Council under the chairmanship of the Director is informed of all key events in the life of the CARPEM. The Director presents and discusses the CARPEM budget, changes in structures and personnel, new participating research teams and changes in the scientific CARPEM strategy. The CARPEM Council can make recommendations as to any subject that has been brought to debate. The members of the Council are:
The CARPEM can rely on a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) composed of nine leading experts in cancer:
They offer their scientific expertise, critical opinion and strategic research advice, as well as their worldwide recognition. The first board took place on 6th July 2013 and the second the 11th January 2016. During the second CARPEM accreditation, the scientific council met on February 20, 2020.
This first edition, dedicated to digestive oncology, was organized by Pr Gérard Friedlander,
