A NeuroSpin team succeeded in decoding a large set of human mental processes by training neural networks to predict cognitive labels from a cognitive atlas and by leveraging the data set of NeuroVault, a web-based database for collecting and sharing statistical maps of the human brain.
Radiochemists from the BioMaps unit (SHFJ) have developed and automated the synthesis of an 18F-fluoropyridine containing a thiol function (-SH), allowing its conjugation to model biomolecules within 45 minutes. A step towards rapid radiolabeling of complex biological molecules for PET imaging.
SIMoS team, in collaboration with Bicêtre Hospital, shows that certolizumab pegol, a pegylated monoclonal antibody fragment for anti-inflammatory use, is less likely to trigger an adverse immune response than the non-pegylated form.
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.
Deeptope, founded in February 2021 from a technology developed at the DMTS Laboratory of Cellular Immunology and Biotechnology (LICB), is a company of therapeutic antibody engineering that provides antibody optimization and characterization services to biotech or pharmaceutical firms with the goal of increasing the quality of antibodies in a very short timeframe.
A project at the interface between quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics for the study of complex molecular assemblies, led by Michel Masella (Joliot) and Luigi Genovese (IRIG), makes it possible, for applications in biology/health, to take full advantage of the new supercomputers of the Public Procurement of Innovations for High-Performance Computing (PPI4HPC, H2020) project hosted at the Très Grand Centre de Calcul (TGCC) of the CEA-Bruyères-le-Châtel.
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.
