In June 2019, the SCBM obtained a European FET-Open funding for the FLIX project (FLow chemistry for Isotopic eXchange), a radically innovative concept of isotopic labeling of molecules with high added values. This 4-year project, coordinated by CEA/SCBM, with an overall budget of 3.5 million euros started on January 1, 2020 and consists of seven European academic or industrial partners in five countries.
The Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences obtains the label of 13 research projects for the recruitment of talented international students in the fields of numerical simulation and scientific computing. Applications must be sent by April 30, 2020.
The European Research Council (ERC) announced, on December 10, 2019, the winners of the 2019 ERC "Consolidator Grants". Three CEA researchers are rewarded for the excellence of their work in astrophysics, particle physics and chemistry. In Joliot, chemistry is honored with the award of the research grant to Davide Audisio, SCBM, for his expertise in labeling molecules of interest with 14Carbone.
168 participants from 21 countries attented the 2019 International Conference on Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (ICMRM) that took place from 18-22 August in Paris. It was co-organized by Luisa Ciobanu (NeuroSpin) and Dimitrios Sakellariou (KU Leuven).
The magnet of the future MRI at 11.7 teslas of the Iseult project at NeuroSpin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a magnetic field of 9.51 teslas during tests carried out on Wednesday 22 May. This new level is a record since the magnet has become on this occasion the most powerful MRI magnet in the world for imaging in humans with a stored energy of 221 MJ. This successful outcome is the result of the work of the Iseult project’s team from the CEA.
The French National Infrastructure of Integrated Structural Biology (FRISBI) is now integratinf Genopole's structural biology platform into its Paris-Sud node.
The M-CUBE consortium, funded by the H2020 program, is now listed in the "success stories" of the European Commission website. A further confirmation of the interest of the work of NeuroSpin physicits and their collaborators on metamaterials to "boost" the MRI of the future.
The union of the Saclay Plateau screening platforms under a single banner C @ PS (Criblage sur le Plateau de Saclay) has just obtained the IBiSA label. Jean-Christophe Cintrat (Joliot / SCBM) is in charge of the overall infrastructure.
Europe is committed to better diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with severe forms of cirrhosis. It finances the MICROB-PREDICT consortium, which aims to better understand the role of the human microbiome in the pathogenesis and evolution of cirrhosis. Final goal is to uture personalized therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools. The SPI (Joliot Institute) is the main project lead for the CEA.
On June 27, Stanislas Dehaene received an exceptional guest at NeuroSpin: the violinist Zhang Zhang and her band played together ZhangoMusic for an unprecedented evening, mixing music and brain, in front of a conquered public. The artist has enthusiastically lent herself to the different cognitive challenges proposed by Stanislas and his accomplices Laurent Cohen and Lionel Naccache.
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.
