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.

An LSOD Research Team (I2BC@Saclay), in collaboration with a Research Team from Mar del Plata University (Argentina), has been able to characterize for the first time a NO-Synthase of plants. Researchers have shown that NO-Synthase from Ostreococcus tauri (pico plankton from the Thau lagoon) produces very large amounts of NO compared to human NO-synthases. However, terrestrial plants do not have NO-synthases and the biological role of this enzyme remains unknown.
