Clinical Research Groups
GRC 01 Sorbonne University relies on the clinical and research expertise of the structures involved in this neo-discipline that is neuro-urology, allowing the evaluation, diagnosis and medical-surgical and rehabilitative therapeutic management of ano-rectal, genito-sexual and urinary disorders observed during congenital or acquired, acute or chronic neural diseases.
The research topics are: Bladder neurophysiology (study of perineal reflexes, bladder motor control) and clinical analysis of urinary, anorectal and sexual dysfunctions in neurogenic patients.
The GRC 01 is the support of specific teaching Sorbonne University: neuro urology and urodynamic diploma, Master 2 Healthcare Clinical Research with a specific program (ReClip: Clinical Research in Pelvi-Perineology).
- GREEN allows to respond to institutional or non-institutional, French or international calls for tenders.
- GREEN promotes the development of industrial cooperation.
- GREEN allows to manage through Sorbonne University, specific staff dedicated to clinical research in neuro-urology.
- GREEN allows the reception of students in Masters of clinical research (mainly Master 2 ReClip (Clinical Research in Pelvi-Perineology) and by its membership to the doctoral school ED3C the reception of science theses.
Research topics are in general, clinical and experimental studies in the field of bladder neurophysiology and clinical neuro-urology; study of perineal reflexes; study of the neurological control of sphincter activity; study of the neurological control of bladder activity.
Specific research studies are: study of autonomic nervous system dysfunction in neurogenic disorders ; Study of the mechanisms of bladder motor function and sensitivity in normal and pathological conditions; analysis of the physiological perineal reflexes and their alterations during diseases of the nervous system; study of bladder, anorectal and perineal sensitivity in physiological and pathological conditions; study of attentional and cognitive mechanisms of bladder control and the need to urinate; study of the pathophysiological factors of alterations of the sacral reflexes; analysis of the mechanisms of action and modalities of optimization of central and peripheral neuromodulations during sphincter, urinary and anorectal disorders.
Finally, GREEN supports para-medical research with specific topics: analysis of the organic, psychogenic, psycho-behavioural and environmental determinants of the conditions of learning, achievement, acceptance and compliance of pelvic-perineal self-care in the neurological patient (e.g. self intermittent catherization);
