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.

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.
The Brain Awareness Week 2018 will take place from Monday, March 12th to Sunday, March 18th. On this occasion, NeuroSpin will open its doors to the public (from 12 to 16) by offering this year, in addition to visits from its imagers, a series of "interactive" conferences in which each speaker will be able to rely on a short video. More time will be spent on questions and answers.
According to a study published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Irène Buvat's Research Team (IMIV, SHFJ), in collaboration with the Vincent Frouin's one (UNATI / NeuroSpin) proposed an unprecedented imaging approach based on the use of the ComBat harmonization method derived from genomics. This method correctly estimates the "center" effect that affects the images and thus makes it possible to analyze together radiomic biomarkers of positron emission tomography (PET) images from different centers.
Julie Soutourina (I2BC@Saclay / SBIGeM) was invited by Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology to publish a review on the molecular functioning of the Mediator, a multi-protein complex, conserved from yeast to humans, and essential to the regulation of the expression of genes. Potential therapeutic approaches targeting the Mediator (cancer, fungal infections) are also adressed.
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.
