The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
Isotopic labeling remains essential for monitoring the in vivo fate of drug candidates. CEA-Joliot researchers have developed high-performance deuterium and tritium labelling techniques.
How can the confidentiality of communications be protected if we cannot absolutely trust the devices used to communicate? Researchers from the IPhT, the University of Basel and the ETH Zürich are addressing this question, which is at the heart of quantum cryptography research.
This summer, after being shut down for 20 months, the ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) has once again opened its doors to scientists, boasting an X-ray source that is one hundred times more brilliant than before (the EBS, Extremely Brilliant Source). Researchers at the Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (CEA-IRIG) are involved in designing new experiments using the new beamlines, which are smaller, more brilliant and more coherent.
A team from the CEA-Joliot has developed an MRI technique that makes it possible to acquire multiple parameters and to reconstruct quantitative maps of the brain with different contrasts, crucial for the diagnosis of brain pathologies.
Publication of a large set of interdisciplinary simulations to which researchers from LSCE (CEA-CNRS-UVSQ) have contributed offers an opportunity to assess the future impact of the melting of the polar ice caps. What are the trends and uncertainties?
Researchers at the CEA-Irig have developed a new concept in nanomaterials involving an assembly of silver nanoparticles linked by a bio-inspired molecule.
On August 19, 2020, the European consortium SpinTronicFactory, led by the French laboratories Spintec (CEA, CNRS, Université Grenoble Alpes) and Thales-CNRS Joint Unit (Palaiseau), published an ambitious spintronics road map in Nature Electronics. The field, at the frontier between magnetism and microelectronics, is coming of age, and offers wide possibilities for innovation.
With the help of X-ray and neutron scattering measurements of model nanoparticles, a team from the Iramis is developing recommendations for the use of functionalized gold nanoparticles in anticancer therapy: the polymer crown must be made from hydrophobic, positively charged monomers.
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.
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.
