NeuroSpin is a research center built to develop and validate neuroimaging using ultra-high Magnetic Field headed by Dr. Denis Le Bihan, a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. It was opened on January 1st 2007. The center is recognized as a large infrastructure, for biomedical imaging, such as the CERN in Genève. It is a shared imaging facility with unique imaging devices,. An 11.7T MRI scanner for human will be installed in 2016, one of the first in the world.
The Institute of Biomedicale Imaging take part in three projects: CATI, INUMAC project and Human Brain Project.
Toutes les faits marquants de l'I²BM
The Neurodegenerative Diseases Laboratory (LMN) is a joint CEA and CNRS research unit (UMR9199).
The LMN, directed by Emmanuel Brouillet, brings together almost 60 scientists with Research interests in Neurosciences, including mechanisms of degeneration, animal models, brain imaging, and gene-, cell- and drug-based strategies for treating neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.
Some of the research projects of URA 2210 are “translational” in nature, designed to lead to clinical applications, thanks in particular to the strong links developed between this unit and Henri Mondor Hospital in Créteil.
The scientific output of UMR9199/LMN is generated with the support from the MIRCen Platforms and is based on collaborations with several academic laboratories in France and elsewhere, and with pharmaceutical groups or biotech companies.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
