Predictive Onco-Urology Research Group


  • Groupe de recherche clinique

The discovery and evaluation of biomarkers and algorithms are new challenges for personalized medicine and precision oncology. The GRC n°5 is a transdisciplinary team focused on urologic tumors (prostate, kidney, urinary excretory tract). Its activities are based on the analysis of clinical-biological, genetics and molecular databases in order to integrate the different phenotypic or genotypic components in predictive models applicable to clinical situations such as prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and theranostics. Modeling methods use explanable artificial intelligence (XAI) to generate clinically applicable decision support tools.

The GRC n°5 consists of a single team (leader: Pr. Cussenot) whose theme is on urological cancers. In this theme, this multidisciplinary team focuses on the following research topics:

  • Constitution and analysis of clinical-biological databases,
  • Epidemiological, genetic and genomic studies,
  • Molecular pathology and imaging,
  • Modeling methods and explanable artificial intelligence.

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:

The Faculty of Medicine teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site includes a midwifery school.
