Since the 1920s, the Drs Bru have always striven, through their research, to relieve suffering. In 1993 Dr Nicole Bru created the Institut UPSA de la Douleur as an ethical and humanitarian extension of the UPSA firm, to promote better pain treatment worldwide. The Fondation Bru wishes to continue the fight against pain through its support of various remarkable initiatives.
The actions supported by the Fondation Bru include:
Founded in 1989 by Professor Victor Izraël and Dr Nicole Bru, APREC (Alliance Pour la Recherche en Cancérologie) has as its vocation the promotion and development of research into all forms of cancer, in partnership with the major national and international research groups. The Fondation Bru financed the fitting out of APREC’s new offices at the Hôpital Tenon in Paris.
