You may have already participated in one of the INSPIRE cohorts, we would like to thank you for that.

Medical research for healthy aging is a priority for the WHO and its Collaborating Center, the Gerontopole of the Toulouse University Hospital.
To thank you for your support and collaboration in the INSPIRE studies, we are developing cultural partnerships to allow you regular and free activities.

As a reminder, to date, two human research studies have already begun. This is the translational research cohort (referred to as the T-cohort) and the ICOPE CARE cohort (referred to as the C-cohort). As specified in the Cohorts section, a 100% digital cohort (called e-Cohort) will be opening by the beginning of summer 2020 to allow technology and independence enthusiasts to be able to evaluate and monitor their functions in self-assessment thanks to the ICOPE MONITOR application or the Botfrail link.

I took part in this study because I feel young in my mind and I want to physically age as well as possible to continue doing everything that matters to me.

I was impressed by the personalized care I received. I just thought I’d come to donate my blood and other samples. But I left with a personalized care plan and I feel like I’m on the move.
