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.

Researchers from the I2BC (SB2SM), in collaboration with CNRS (LCP, ICMMO) have designed an original artificial photosynthesis approach, based on the use of semiconductor nanopolymers composed of PolyDiPhenylButadiyne, capable of reproducing the full photo-redox reaction of plant Photosystem II, that is the production of O2 by photo-oxidation of water and the reduction of a quinone.
In order to optimize the amplification of quality inactivated virus, for the manufacture of a vaccine, a team from SPI (CEA Marcoule) used mass spectrometry to analyze the dynamics of the proteome of SARS-CoV-2 infected cells, at two multiplicities of infection. With more than 3,220 identified host proteins, researchers are also starting to decipher the processes and cellular networks impacted by this virus.
Researchers from the LMC have developed a new series of iminosydnones that can split in two and release two fluorophores. They are providing a proof of concept that this "click and release" reaction can be triggered in living cells.
SIMoS researchers, in collaboration with Genopole, Excellgene, Vaxeal holding SA (Switzerland), used a large-scale approach to map and characterize the response of CD4 T-cells from healthy donors, against two proteins from the Ebola-Zaire virus. They observed a strong response to the viral nucleoprotein (NP) and suggest that components of NP may be included in the design of new Ebola vaccines.
SPI researchers show for the first time, in a mouse model, the induction of cross-protection against Salmonella and Shigella infections, two pathogenic bacteria responsible for gastrointestinal diseases (typhoid, dysentery among others), one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in several regions of Africa and Asia.
In two articles published in PLoS ONE, researchers at NeuroSpin show that diffusion MRI can monitor astrocyte activity in the brain in a non-invasive way, allowing a better understanding of its involvement in the glymphatic system and in functional MRI.
SPI researchers (Marcoule) used proteomics to identify signature peptides of the SARS-CoV-2 virus expressed in vitro. A "short list" of 14 identified and characterized peptides allows to consider developments in targeted mass spectrometry, making this direct and rapid large-scale approach, implantable in hospitals, a potential tool of choice in the detection of the virus responsible for Covid-19.
Using public MRI data sets from the knee and brain, researchers from NeuroSpin and Cosmostat (CEA-Irfu) have written a consistent benchmark of several deep neural networks used for image reconstruction with significantly reduced acquisition time.
A team from SCBM, in collaboration with researchers from I2BC, SHFJ and IRAMIS, has synthesized new neutral macrocycles called bambusurils (BUs). These BUs can be functionalized by “click chemistry” to obtain multivalent architectures decorated with 8 to 12 ligands of interest, an alternate topology which gives them remarkable supramolecular properties.
Researchers from the SCBM in collaboration with teams from IRAMIS, AstraZeneca and the Karolinska Institutet have developed a second marking method based on the dynamic exchange of carbon dioxide, this time without catalysis, by "simple" thermal heating. Ideal for organic molecules of therapeutic interest, the method is described in tAngewandte Chemie.
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.
