The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
Inaugurated in March 2019, the joint laboratory between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore and CEA displays its first series of publications co-signed by researchers from NTU, CEA-Iramis, ICSM and DES in Marcoule.
According to an international study involving the LSCE, a reversal in the trend of terrestrial wind potential was observed in 2010. Its correlation with well-identified climatic mechanisms suggests the potential to optimize wind generation throughout the lifetime of facilities.
A bacterium present in our intestinal macrobiota produces a particularly interesting antibiotic: Ruminococcin C1. Explanations from CEA-Irig.
A NeuroSpin team, in collaboration with researchers from SHFJ and MIRCen (CEA-Jacob), is identifying a predictive indicator of the potentially deleterious effect of devices using ultrasound to deliver drugs to the brain.
A team from CEA-Joliot in Marcoule detected by mass spectrometry, in 3 minutes and without specific reagents, signature peptides of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples (nasopharyngeal swabs). It thus provides a proof of concept of the use of this method as a possible alternative to PCR, currently the reference method.

PHARMACOLOGY | INFECTIOUS DISEASES
A study on the effects of hydroxychloroquine in macaques infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, used alone or in combination with azithromycin, have been published on Nature; the 22th oh july. Scientists from the CEA, CNRS, Inserm, Institut Pasteur, Université de Paris-Saclay, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and Aix-Marseille Université have been involved in the study, which has been carried out under the aegis of the multidisciplinary consortium, REACTing.

The European project VERIFY, coordinated by the CEA, aims to provide the European Commission with a system to monitor greenhouse gas emissions declarations submitted by each country under the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change.
ENERGIES | ENERGY EFFICIENCY | ENERGY STORAGE | BATTERIES | LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES
Scientists have performed a thorough analysis of promising silicon-based electrode technology with regard to Li-ion battery decay in the course of charge/discharge cycles. Oversaw by the CEA, this project was carried out through a balanced partnership between three academic and as many industry partners.
CROSS-FUNCTIONAL DISCIPLINES | COMPUTING | ELECTRONICS | SPINTRONICS | MICRO-NANOTECHNOLOGIES
Using optical rather than electrical technology to write to MRAM magnetic storage media would unlock a thousandfold speed increase and slash power consumption by a factor of 100. Spice aims to tackle this challenge and promote the use of non-volatile memory near processor cores. A computing revolution in perspective...
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.
