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.

The goal of NeuroSpin is to push the current limits of brain imaging, from the mouse to man, as far as possible with very high magnetic field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). NMR imaging (MRI) can be used to observe deep organs totally non-invasively. The more intense the magnetic field, the greater the sensitivity, allowing more details to be seen. Benefiting from CEA know-how in the conception of magnets and NMR, this technical platform will be equipped with unrivalled NMR imaging tools.
Grouping physicists and neurobiologists, in close collaboration with other government research agencies and universities, in particular from the Paris Region, open to the national and international community, the NeuroSpin platform will co-ordinate research, provide a network of skills and an optimisation of means. About 150 researchers, physicians, students, engineers, technicians, … are expected to develop innovative tools and methodologies, and apply them to neurobiology at large, from neurogenetics and neurophysiology to cognitive neurosciences and clinical neurology..
Federating a great many regional, national and international partnerships, NeuroSpin will be a true drive towards technological innovation and distribution that will also contribute the industrial and economic fabric of the Paris Region.
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.
