Laurence Comte-Arassus joins the IHU-ICAN Board of Directors

Laurence Comte-Arassus, member of the board of directors and of the office of Snitem (National union of the medical technology industry) will participate this Thursday, June 24 for the first time in the board of directors of the IHU-ICAN (Institut hospitalo -academic of cardiometabolism and nutrition) as a qualified personality from the economic world.

Laurence Comte-Arassus was appointed to the IHU-ICAN Board of Directors last March. His appointment by the current board of directors reflects IHU-ICAN’s desire to strengthen its links with medical device companies. This university hospital institute, located in the heart of the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital, relies on the medical and scientific excellence, in the field of cardiometabolic diseases, of the doctors and researchers of the AP-HP, the ‘Inserm and Sorbonne University. It is thus continuing its in-depth transformation to develop more public/private collaborations with a view to accelerating innovations for the benefit of patients suffering from cardiometabolic and nutritional pathologies.

The perfect knowledge of the medical device industry acquired during a remarkable professional career and her role within the Snitem will allow Laurence Comte-Arassus to bring a new dimension to the construction of the partnership policy of the IHU- I CAN.
