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.
Researchers at BioMaps (SHFJ) have succeeded in determining the interaction dynamics of buprenorphine, an opioid drug with a particularly complex pharmacology, with its brain receptors in vivo. To do so, they developed an original PET imaging approach based on the use of the radiolabeled molecule (11C-buprenorphine).
Researchers at the CEA-Joliot Institute (Carbon-14 labeling Laboratory), in collaboration with teams from AstraZeneca, Sanofi and Nimbe (CEA-Iramis), have developed a labeling method, based on nitrile exchange using nickel catalysis. This method is currently under study at Sanofi for the labeling of a drug candidate.
The Ginkgo team (BAOBAB / NeuroSpin), in collaboration with the Inserm iBRAIN U1253 unit (Tours), published in NeuroImage the first anatomical atlas of the human brainstem with at mesoscopic scaleresolution from extreme ultra-high field MRI. Freely available as a wiki, this atlas will be used in particular by neuroanatomists and neurosurgeons.
Aloïse Mabondzo, research director, head of the Neurovascular Pharmacology Group of the SPI (DMTS), co-founder and scientific director (CSO) of CERES BRAIN THERAPEUTICS, has just obtained funding of nearly one million US dollars from the prestigious National Institute of Health for his project « Neuroprotective Strategy: Novel Purine Derivatives for Neonatal Hypoxia-ischemia ».
Jean-Luc Gennisson (BioMaps/SHFJ) coordinated, in partnership with the CEA-List (Sylvain Chatillon), the EchoBrain project (ATTRACT/H2020) aimed at adapting the digital tools developed by the List (CIVA platform) to significantly increase the quality of brain echography images, simple alternative compared to the methods (MRI, X-ray scanner) currently used for the diagnosis of strokes.
Coordinated by the Imagine Institute for Genetic Diseases, the ATRACTion program is based on a consortium of 11 academic and industrial partners, including SPI (DMTS), and aims to develop a precision medicine for patients with autoimmune and inflammatory diseases associated with primary immune deficiencies.
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.
