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.

The Molecular Engineering for Health Unit (SIMoS) carries out research focused on the identification and pre-clinical development of bioactive molecules (small molecules but mostly peptides and proteins) isolated from natural or synthetic libraries. Their developments include the in-vitro and in-vivo characterization of their functional properties, the molecular and structural analysis of their mode of action and the optimization of their druggability by chemical/biological engineering aiming to increase their potency and selectivity or to suppress their immunogenicity.
SIMOPRO is part of several international research networks working on the molecular engineering of proteins, member of the Labex
Lermit (Laboratory of Excellence in Research on Medication and Innovative Therapeutics) and participates to the Joint Ministerial Program of R&D against chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNe) risks.
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.
