The Methodology and Quality of Life in Cancerology Unit (UMQVC) was set up in 2011 at Besançon University Hospital to help and develop clinical research activity, mainly in the field of oncology.

We offer methodological expertise for the construction of clinical trials and epidemiological studies using the most appropriate validated tools. Our philosophy is to provide the methodological rigor required for quality clinical research while keeping the benefit of the patient as a priority. Our national and international collaborations allow us to widely share our vision and expertise. The UMQVC was founded by Professor Franck Bonnetain. Today under the responsibility of Dr Déwi VERNEREY, the entire team - clinical research associates, data managers, statisticians/epidemiologists - continues to promote the idea that the patient must remain at the center of research.

The UMQVC is a functional unit of the oncology department of Besançon University Hospital and is affiliated with the Right Mixed Research Unit UMR1098.

The UMQVC provides its methodological expertise for carrying out studies, mainly in the field of clinical research in oncology. She is involved in the design, conduct, data management, statistical analysis and valorization of the results of clinical trials and cohort studies.

Beyond its national and international collaborations, the UMQVC carries its own research subjects and has two privileged themes. The first is the statistical methodology of risk prediction and stratification to provide clinicians with tools to adapt management strategies and guide research strategies. The second concerns research on routine monitoring of HRQoL. The objective is to use HRQoL information as a complementary tool in the care of patients with cancer.
