"Created by the will of Dr. Yves Cotrel in 1999, this non-profit foundation has the income from a family donation managed by the Institut de France.
They make it possible to operate it administratively and to support research projects.
Nevertheless the contribution of donations and bequests is essential to strengthen the means of financing the research projects to which they are fully affected."
Dépistage de la scoliose : Dépister tôt pour mieux soigner.
Dear Colleagues and Researchers
Since its creation in 1999, the Foundation Yves Cotrel has focused on its core research theme: The Etiology of Idiopathic Scoliosis. The Foundation has supported many projects with different approach from all over the world. Research projects that aim at detecting progressive forms or understanding the mechanisms responsible for these deformations as early as possible, may allow treatments to be most effective.The challenge of identifying the causes and mechanisms in the evolution of idiopathic scoliosis is ambitious, but we still need to conduct further investigation.The Foundation is interested in funding projects from different perspectives such as Biomechanics, Neurology or Neurosensory, Genetics or Metabolic Studies, etc.
