UMR 1023 IMIV
The IMIV lab (UMR1023 Inserm/CEA/Paris Sud University and ERL 9218 CNRS) created on 1st January 2015 is a pluridisciplinary research lab dedicated to In Vivo Molecular Imaging..
Our goal is to perform original proofs of concept in in vivo molecular imaging, validate them in small patient cohorts and then disseminate these methods in France and abroad.
First, to contribute to significant advances in each of the specialties involved in molecular imaging, namely:
Then, based on these four pillars central to our research, we address specific projects related to molecular imaging and requiring the broad range of expertise gathered in the lab. At the moment, we are involved in three highly innovative transversal projects: neuroinflammation imaging as a ubiquitous process in a number of disease, simultaneous PET-MR imaging, and the LOTUS project aiming at considerably facilitating the production and use of new radiopharmaceutical use for safe and fast evaluation of their clinical value.
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.
