To carry out their activities, Research Teams of the Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences have developed high-profile technological platforms in many areas : biomedical imaging, structural biology, metabolomics, High-Throughput screening, level 3 microbiological safety laboratory...
Within the Institute, the "Funding Research and Technology Transfer" team is at your disposal to identify the scientists and the skills you need to set up a joint project, to define the terms of a collaboration contract or study.
Whether you are an academic, a SME or an industrialist, our team informs and advices you about the possibilities of consortium assembly, technology transfer, patent licensing or use of our platforms.
The team is also at the disposal of the researchers of the institute to accompany them in achieving their valorization objectives.
All the news of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot
Researchers at the "Laboratoire Innovations technologiques pour la Détection et le Diagnostic" (LI2D, in Marcoule) of the Department of Medicines and Technologies for Health (DMTS) have developed a mathematical method to identify in a metaproteomics dataset the contribution of each of the organisms that make up a microbiota. This robust method, called phylopeptidomics, is described in the journal Microbiome.
The Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences obtains the label of 13 research projects for the recruitment of talented international students in the fields of numerical simulation and scientific computing. Applications must be sent by April 30, 2020.
A team from NeuroSpin, in collaboration with researchers from the Sainte-Anne Hospital and from the University of Minho, has developed, using magnetic resonance imaging, a unique set of resources for the analysis and visualization of preclinical data in the rat brain.
NeuroSpin researchers have developed a software for preprocessing non-human primate brain raw images obtained by functional magnetic resonance imaging. The aim is to help harmonize methods, improve procedures, facilitate comparison and interpretation of the acquired images and to minimize the number of animals to be used in research.
By studying the self-assembly of a hormone-derived peptide in the presence of lipid membranes, a team of the SB2SM (Joliot Institute / I2BC) in collaboration with the University of Rennes 1 and Ipsen biopharmaceutical group, shows how the interactions electrostatic type modify the structures of the assemblies formed by each of these molecules alone in solution.
A study conducted by Maxime Bertoux (Unit 1171 Inserm / Lille University / CHU Lille) in collaboration with researchers from the Centre Hospitalier Saint Anne, the SHFJ (CEA-Joliot), NeuroSpin (CEA-Joliot) and the ICM shows that the morphological analysis of the cortical sulci would make it possible to recognize Alzheimer's disease in 91% of the cases, against 80% now by anatomical analysis of the cortex.
A training seminar "on biological toxins and on site detection" on in situ detection of biological toxins for first responders and validation of forensic procedures was held at CEA Paris-Saclay from 3 to 5 March 2020.
168 participants from 21 countries attented the 2019 International Conference on Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (ICMRM) that took place from 18-22 August in Paris. It was co-organized by Luisa Ciobanu (NeuroSpin) and Dimitrios Sakellariou (KU Leuven).
The magnet of the future MRI at 11.7 teslas of the Iseult project at NeuroSpin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a magnetic field of 9.51 teslas during tests carried out on Wednesday 22 May. This new level is a record since the magnet has become on this occasion the most powerful MRI magnet in the world for imaging in humans with a stored energy of 221 MJ. This successful outcome is the result of the work of the Iseult project’s team from the CEA.
The French National Infrastructure of Integrated Structural Biology (FRISBI) is now integratinf Genopole's structural biology platform into its Paris-Sud node.
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.
