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.

Research Teams from the Curie Institute, the Gustave Roussy Institute, as well as the biophysics teams from the Institute of Chemistry of Natural Substances and SB2SM (I2BC@Saclay) met to systematically identify structural defects and BRCA1 proteins encoded by variants of the BRCA1 gene, a gene predisposing to breast and ovarian cancer. Their results make it possible to propose a classification of these variants (neutral versus causal).
A SB2SM Research Team (I2BC@Saclay) solved by crystallography the structure of a ternary protein complex at the interface between the nuclear envelope (emerin and lamin A / C) and the genome (BAF). In collaboration with Teams from Paris-Sud and Paris-Diderot Universities, the structure analysis, as well as in vitro interaction and proximity experiments in cellulo, suggests that a lack of interaction between the lamina A / C (nucleoskeleton) and chromatin-associated protein (BAF) may be one of the mechanisms responsible for premature aging syndromes.
SHFJ Researchers (IMIV), in collaboration with Vienna University, studied the brain transport of a drug, called metoclopramide. Radiolabelling of carbon-11 metoclopramide and PET imaging showed that a transporter of the blood-brain barrier, P-glycoprotein, blocked not only the entry of the drug into the brain but also facilitated the elimination to the blood. This result demonstrates for the first time in vivo and non-invasively a detoxification system able to eliminate certain compounds of the brain.
In studies published in ChemPhotoChem, I2BC@Saclay, SCBM and ICMMO researchers have developed a gentle method for photo-CO2 reduction by molecular catalysts, followed by a carbonylation reaction that immediately reuse the CO produced. This device can be used for the introduction of radioactive carbon atoms into molecules of therapeutic interest.
