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.

A collaboration between researchers of the Yamanashi University (Japan) and the CEA showed that it is possible to characterize liver lesions from their elastic properties estimated virtually from MRI measurements of the molecular diffusion of the water. The MRI is thus an interesting option to succeed the conventional MRI elastography used in these exams, the latter with defects (low resolution images, heavy implementation). This work was published in the journal Radiology on June 12, 2017.
