||The IRCAN research work aims to study and understand the aging mecanisms and also the disfunctions which could appear during this aging process.The Institute of Research on Cancer and Aging in Nice (IRCAN), created in January 2012, is located at the Pasteur Campus of the School of Medicine, part of the University of Nice. IRCAN is strongly implicated in teaching and research skills. The IRCAN research work aims to study and understand the aging mecanisms and also the disfunctions which could appear during this aging process. The IRCAN studies mainly these fundamental mecanisms, implicated in pathological dysfunctions which are at the origin of cancers, as well as certain forms of diabetes, kidney insufficiency, neuro-degenerative and cardiovasculary illnesses. The fundamental biological studies are focused on diagnostics and therapeutical strategies to treat carcinomas and cancer from different tissue origins and to stop premature organ aging related to pathological aging as well as the organ reactions to environmental stress.
