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.
All the news of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot
Research Teams from SHFJ, MIRCen and NeuroSpin tested a pharmacokinetic analysis model of Positron-emission tomography (PET) data at 18F-DPA-714, taking into account endothelial cell activity not specifically associated with an inflammatory state. This model allows a more precise interpretation of PET images of neuroinflammation present in most neurodegenerative pathologies.
A Research Team from I2BC@Saclay (SB2SM), in collaboration with ISMO and ICMMO teams (CNRS / Univ.Paris-Sud, Univ.Paris-Saclay) measured accumulation kinetics of electrical charges within a molecular system designed for studies on artificial photosynthesis. These works, published in Angewandte Chemie, show for the first time the second electron of this fundamental process about the conversion of light energy into fuel.
Researchers from NeuroSpin (Frédéric Joliot Institute/CEA) and MIRCen (François Jacob Institute/CEA Institute of Biology) have just developed an ultrasound device guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to increase temporarily and locally the vascular permeability in non-human primates, which could be used to effectively deliver drugs to the brain.
In collaboration with a German Research Team from Marburg University, Pavel Müller and Klaus Brettel (I2BC @ Saclay / SB2SM) have studied the first steps of photoactivation of a Class II photolyase of the Methanosarcina mazei archaeobacteria by resolute optical spectroscopy time and discovered a peculiarity of this class of photolyases: photoinduced separation of charges is stabilized by a water cluster, a structural element also preserved in class II photolyases of plants and animals.
Directed by Thierry Meinnel, it carries out research on Integrative Biology of the Cell.
Directed by Christophe Junot, it carries out research on Molecular Innovation for human health.
Directed by Stanislas Dehaene, it is a Research Infrastructure designed to study the singularity of the brain.
Directed by Vincent Lebon, it carries out research in Molecular and Functional Imaging and provides a medical service mission.
CEA Saclay Centre - NeuroSpin
Held annually in March since 1998 all over the world, the Brain Awareness Week aims to raise awareness of the importance of research in the field of neuroscience. Since 2013, NeuroSpin has actively participated in Brain Awareness Week and has become a flagship venue on the Paris-Saclay campus. This year again, a very rich cycle of conferences for the general public (free access: places limited to 140) as well as guided tours by reservation will be offered.
NeuroSpin amphitheatre (Bât 547)
On the 6th and 7th of July will take place the doctoral students' days (JDD) of the Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences will take place. For this event, PhD students and researchers will meet for two days to discuss about their work.
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.
