The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
Institute of Biomedical Imaging develops methodologies and multimodal biomedical imaging technologies as well as their applications. Its researchers focus on understanding how the human brain functions, on diagnostic tools, and on innovative therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, viral and oncological diseases.
Institute of Biology and Technology Saclay conducts research projects in genetics, molecular and cellular biology, structural biology, protein engineering, pharmacology, organic and inorganic chemistry, bioenergy, and biosecurity. This research is supported by the development of methodologies such as metabolomics, spectroscopy (NMR, Raman, EPR, etc.), high-throughput screening, immunoanalysis and isotopic labeling.
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.
