The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
The CEA-Jacob and his partners teamed to compare FLASH radiotherapy to conventional radiotherapy in the setting of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Researchers from I2BC and SPI (DMTS, Marcoule), in collaboration with CEA Grenoble and the Belgian nuclear research center, discovered, by using two meta-omic approaches, living bacteria in the core pool of the CEA Paris-Saclay research reactor, Osiris, in operation, thus opening up perspectives for the discovery of new radioresistant species.
There is a specific signature of COVID infections in expired air in intubated and ventilated patients, referred to as "severe COVID patients". Explanations from CEA-Joliot and CEA-List.
New work by the CEA-Joliot on the venom of the green mamba confirms the therapeutic potential of the toxin and paves the way for its use as a diagnostic tool.
The construction of the photosynthetic apparatus in the cells of leaves of flowering plants involves subtle mechanisms. The CEA-Irig is providing some explanations.
Researchers from the Biam (CEA) have discovered an essential role for a novel giant protein involved in the degradation of “lipid droplets”, which are the primary site of carbon and energy storage in certain microalgae.
Cells move, deform and divide. CEA-Irig researchers are gaining a better and better understanding of how. To do this, they have "cut" the contractile cables very precisely with a laser.
Microbial rhodopsins are among the proteins responsible for capturing solar energy on the Earth, especially in the seas. Researchers from CEA-Irig (IBS) have characterized the structure and function of several unique rescently disoived rhodopsins.
Researchers at CEA-Joliot (I2BC) have optimized a bio-inspired CO2 reduction catalyst by modifying its 3D topology.
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.
