FROM MOLECULE...TO HUMAN
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.

An opinion article, published in Environmental Microbiology, and written by an international consortium initiated by three researchers of Joliot Institute, proposes an original way of research on Covid-19 through the identification by sequencing of attenuated variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in populations at risk with little or no symptoms.
In order to answer this question, a vast study of experimental psychology and chronobiology, directed by Virginie Van Wassenhove (NeuroSpin) was launched in collaboration with Inserm and the University of Paris-Saclay.
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université1, CEA2 and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
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.
In June 2019, the SCBM obtained a European FET-Open funding for the FLIX project (FLow chemistry for Isotopic eXchange), a radically innovative concept of isotopic labeling of molecules with high added values. This 4-year project, coordinated by CEA/SCBM, with an overall budget of 3.5 million euros started on January 1, 2020 and consists of seven European academic or industrial partners in five countries.
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.
The European Research Council (ERC) announced, on December 10, 2019, the winners of the 2019 ERC "Consolidator Grants". Three CEA researchers are rewarded for the excellence of their work in astrophysics, particle physics and chemistry. In Joliot, chemistry is honored with the award of the research grant to Davide Audisio, SCBM, for his expertise in labeling molecules of interest with 14Carbone.
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.
