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...
All the news of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot
The Joliot Institute maintains more than 200 collaborations with institutions in at least fifteen countries around the world.
Its teams can rely on the Institute's resources to respond to calls for projects from the European Union (ERC, EITHealth, RIA, ITN...). They also benefit from the actions implemented by the CEA's Fundamental Research Department to develop their partnerships, particularly in Europe.
The QSM4SENIOR project, led by NeuroSpin and the company VENTIO, aims at developing an original early biomarker of aging by using data from the SENIOR study of NeuroSpin. QSM4SENIOR has just been funded by the EOSC-Life.
AROMA, a FET-Open H2020 project, aims to develop the methodology necessary for the optimal operation of the future 11.7 T MRI being installed at NeuroSpin. This 5-year project, coordinated by Nicolas Boulant (NeuroSpin), with an overall budget of 3.6 million euros, involving six partners from five countries representing academia and industry, started on January 1, 2021.
EBRAINS (European Brain ReseArch INfrastructureS) is a european research infrastructure designed by the scientific community which, based on a set of state-of-the-art digital platforms, aims to answer the analysis and processing needs of large brain data sets. CEA carries for France EBRAINS inscription on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures roadmap, which was submitted in early September 2020.
Theofanis Panagiotaropoulos (NeuroSpin) obtains funding from the Human Brain Project for BRICON (Brain Inspired Consciousness), a project of HBP's neuroscience activities.
On September 3, the European Research Council announced the names of the 436 winners of the ERC Starting Grant 2020 call. Florent Meyniel, CEA researcher at the NeuroSpin department of the Joliot Institute, is among them.
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.
