Researchers at SPI are proposing an innovative multiplexing method for rapid identification of several microbial isolates in a single mass spectrometry analysis. This approach opens up prospects for the large-scale identification of microorganisms resulting from culturomics programs.
Researchers from SCBM (DMTS) and SB2SM (I2BC) describe a novel and optimized approach to the total photoreduction of 13C-labelled CO2 to carbon monoxide (CO), and the immediate reuse of the latter for the synthesis of high value-added compounds. A step towards a radiochemistry of carbon isotopes potentially useful in human health.
Researchers at SCBM have used a click-and-release chemistry approach to mass-release an anti-cancer drug into cells from cleavable nanomicelles, thanks to a bioorthogonal activation process. A step towards the development of new nanomedicines
Researchers at BioMaps evaluated the effect of several factors on the distribution of [18F]DPA-714 in 201 subjects who participated in SHFJ PET imaging protocols to better understand the role of neuroinflammation in various neurological diseases. They conclude that measures of individual metabolism are important in image interpretation.
A collaborative study by NeuroSpin researchers, using anatomical MRI data and a dimensional approach in 850 subjects from the Healthy Brain Network cohort, shows how the social skills of these children and adolescents are linked to the structure of their cerebellum
Le 07 septembre, l'équipe MIND organisait son kick-off meeting, symbolisant la volonté commune de sestutell es, CEA et Inria, de consolider et de créer des synergies en intelligence artificielle et machine learning pour les neurosciences.
Researchers at BioMaps (SHFJ) and SPI (DMTS) have studied the pharmacokinetics of a novel immuno-radioligand targeting the endothelin A receptor (ETA), overexpressed in many cancers, particularly glioblastoma. The immunoPET imaging approach used in this study in a preclinical model confirms the theranostic potential of this antibody.
In a review article published in Nature Neuroscience, researchers, including Florent Meyniel from UNICOG (NeuroSpin), show that the two dominant approaches to the neural representation of uncertainty are complementary and would benefit from being used synergistically.
In a study conducted by a team from the Marie Lannelongue Hospital, SPI researchers have established a difference between the metabolomic profiles of heart grafts harvested from pigs in a state of encephalic death or dead after controlled circulatory arrest. This work contributes to the exploration and validation of the use of hearts taken from people who have died after controlled circulatory arrest as a new source of grafts.
Des chercheurs de l'institut montrent qu’une stratégie fondée sur la formation du radical anion CO2●- marqué au carbone 14 ou carbone 11 s’avère payante pour radiomarquer en conditions douces des médicaments.
A l’occasion d’une rencontre entre nos deux chargées de recrutement de volontaires « sains », retour sur cette activité indispensable pour l’ensemble de la recherche biomédicale menée au sein de deux départements de l’institut Joliot : NeuroSpin et le SHFJ.
NeuroSpin researchers show that spontaneous neuronal oscillations in the 'delta' frequency band (0.5-3 Hz), the wave of unconscious states, can be observed in awake human volunteers using MEG. A step towards characterizing underlying physiological signals?
Des chercheurs de NeuroSpin, en collaboration avec NeuroPSI montrent que l’effet des ultra hauts champs magnétiques sur l’appareil vestibulaire de souris est transitoire.
A team from SIMoS and SCBM, in collaboration with researchers from I2BC, has shown that autophagic degradation is at work when mammalian cells are poisoned by ricin. Stimulating this process could provide additional protection against this deadly toxin.
In an article in the New York Times, Stanislas Dehaene (NeuroSpin director) and Mathias Sablé-Meyer (PhD student) discuss recent results obtained in collaboration with the Collège de France, the CNRS and the University of Paris 8 that show that humans have a universal capacity to understand abstract geometric concepts.
September 2021, the 11.7 Tesla MRI of the Iseult project, the most powerful in the world for human imaging, has just unveiled its first images.
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université , CEA and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of 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.
