The SHFJ is a research center dedicated to molecular and functional non-invasive imaging for clinical and preclinical research in oncology, neurology, neurodegenerative disease and psychiatry. The facility includes a nuclear medicine unit and is located in Orsay's Hospital area (near Paris).
The SHFJ is the nuclear medicine facility of the Orsay-Longjumeau Hospital (near Paris). In addition to its mission of healthcare, the center develops research programs for the improving the quantitative performance of molecular imaging based on positron emission tomography (PET), including PET-MR. Research includes developing novel imaging agents, enhancing data analysis methods, and kinetic modelling. These methods are used to elucidate physiopathological mechanisms mostly in brain and cancer imaging , both in clinical and pre-clinical settings.
The SHFJ includes 5 research groups:
"In vivo molecular imaging" (IMIV) UMR1023
"Multimodality imaging for oncology" UMR8081 IR4M
URM9199 CNRS/CEA, a unit dedicated to study pathophysiological process in Neurodegenerative Diseases and new therapies for these diseases
UMR1129 which develop research on Epilepsies and cerebral plasticity of the child brain
"Laboratory for Methodological Developments in Positron Emission Tomography" (a team of the UMR 6301 in Caen)
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.
