University Hospital Federation “SUPORT” SUrvival oPtimization in ORgan Transplantation
Combined talents and skills to stimulate the innovation
In partnership with institutional and industrials
Collaborative projects to optimize organ transplantation, for and with the patient
The best quality of life for the transplanted patient
From the laboratory to the hospital bed, improvement of healthcare at the center of our challenges


Created in 2014 by research, hospital and university teams from Tours, Poitiers and Limoges, the Federation Hospitalo-Universitaire (FHU) SUPORT aims to group for the first time, in the field of the organ transplantation, talents and skills to stimulate the innovation and develop new protocols of clinical and fundamental research.

In a context of shortage of the transplant, clinicians, researchers and academics combine their expertise around two priority axes: the improvement of the graft survival by optimizing the conditioning of the donor, and the personalized care of the transplanted patient in the short and long term.

Re-labeled in 2022 by HUGO (Grand Ouest University Hospitals), FHU SUPORT now involves  the University Hospitals and the Universities of Angers, Brest, Limoges, Nantes, Poitiers, Rennes and Tours, and also 2 associated centers (Orléans Regional Hospital Center and Hospital Center of Le Mans), as well as research teams notably members of AVIESAN (U1227 – Brest, U1313 - Poitiers, U1092 and U1248 – Limoges, CIC 1414 – Rennes, EA4245 - Tours).

In partnership with numerous institutional and industrial actors, the FHU SUPORT meets the challenge: optimize the chances of success of the organ transplant and improve the quality of life of the transplanted patient.
