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.

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.
A SIMOPRO Research Team, in collaboration with a SCBM Team, has identified, by screening a library of small chemical molecules, a compound capable of reducing the sensitivity of cells to a plant toxin, that is ricin. By collaborating with seven Teams of microbiologists, researchers have shown that this compound, called ABMA, protects cells by blocking an intracellular transport pathway borrowed by many other bacterial and intracellular pathogenic toxins. ABMA defines a new family of broad-spectrum anti-infective agents.
Named Chairman of the Scientific Council of National Education by Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer, Stanislas Dehaene (Inserm / CEA-NeuroSpin / Paris-Sud University/ College de France) will coordinate the work and reflections of the council on learning to feed reflection about strategies to promote student learning. The constitution of the Scientific Council, composed of twenty-one members, was presented on the 10th of January 2018.
The Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell - I2BC (including Teams from I2BC@Saclay) celebrated the laying of the foundation stone of its future building on the 13th of December 2017 on the CNRS campus in Gif-sur-Yvette. The objective of the I2BC real estate project is to bring together, within a common research and training project, Research Teams in a single location to stimulate interactions, share the most effective skills and equipment.
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.
