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.

Molecular Imaging Research Center
MIRCen -Molecular Imaging Research Center- is a preclinical research installation created by the CEA and INSERM.
This installation, based at the CEA center in Fontenay-aux-Roses, consists of a group of platforms dedicated to the development of animal models pertinent to human diseases. These animal models are used in the evaluation of innovative treatments, principally in the domain of neurodegenerative diseases, but also in the fields of infectious and cardiac diseases.
These platforms occupy 8500 m² and provide access to complementary expertise and methodologies for both academic and industrial research teams at the national and international levels (see "Service request").
About a hundred researchers, research officers, technicians, clinicians and students from the CEA, INSERM and CNRS, and from Henri Mondor Hospital, work at this center, on their own research programs (see the "Neurodegenerative Diseases Laboratory”) or lend their focused expertise in neurosciences to the running of the platforms (see “MIRCen plateforms”).
MIRCen has GIS IBISA (Infrastructures in Biology, Health and Agronomy) accreditation.
