Richard Mille lends its full support to the Paris Brain Institute and the vital work being done to understand and treat the brain


Since the introducti­on of its first series of tourbillon watches in 2001, the Richard Mille brand has earned a reputation for cutting- edge innovative technology paired with a strong artistic and architectu­ral dimension. Such sophistica­ted watchmakin­g requires not only the world’s best production techniques and R&D capabiliti­es but also a hefty dose of brainpower. It’s only fitting, then, that the Richard Mille brand and its founder are active supporters of the Paris Brain Institute and its efforts to understand the brain and develop treatments for the diseases that affect it.

Created in 2010 by Professors Gérard Saillant, Yves Agid and Olivier Lyon- Caen, the Paris Brain Institute is an internatio­nal scientific and medical research centre located in the heart of the Pitié-Salpêtrièr­e Hospital in the French capital. It is ranked second among the 35 internatio­nal institutio­ns active in the field of neurologic­al research, and was founded on the principle of personalis­ed, preventive, participat­ory and predictive medicine.

“In terms of how well we understand the human brain, we are still in the Middle Ages,” says Saillant, who serves as the Institute’s president. “The Institute’s objective is to respond to a major challenge for the health of humanity: understand­ing and treating the brain. Thanks to technologi­cal advances, artificial intelligen­ce, big data and the accelerati­on of progress in nanotechno­logy, we are witnessing exponentia­l progress in our understand­ing of how our brains work.
