International Network of VENous Thromboembolism Clinical Research Networks

Flag of France


Endorsed Studies:

INNOVTE is a national network composed of CHUs, CHGs and private clinics engaged in clinical research on venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, grouped around 12 Clinical Investigation Centers, four INSERM units, a reception team and a Biological Resource Center. Our research topics include therapeutic venous thromboembolism, but also diagnostic and prognostic aspects using biomarkers. The presence of several translational research teams also allows us to address more fundamental research questions.
