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.

By improving the in vitro reconstitution of the iron-sulfur clusters biosynthesis machinery, a team from SBIGEM (CEA-Joliot / I2BC), with its French, German and Spanish collaborators, clarifies the function of frataxin, a protein involved in Friedreich’s ataxia.
Recent work by SBIGeM (I2BC@Saclay) highlights how two essential components of DNA transcription into RNA coordinate to recruit the Rad2/XPG DNA repair protein, thus linking these two fundamental cellular processes.
The SHFJ/IMIV laboratory (Inserm 1023/CNRS/CEA/UP-Sud), in collaboration with hospital-university teams, has shown that, in patients with advanced-stage large cell lymphoma (B type), automatic quantitative measurements of tumor dissemination detected by whole-body PET imaging have a predictive value of progression-free survival (tumor stabilization) and overall survival.
Europe is committed to better diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with severe forms of cirrhosis. It finances the MICROB-PREDICT consortium, which aims to better understand the role of the human microbiome in the pathogenesis and evolution of cirrhosis. Final goal is to uture personalized therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools. The SPI (Joliot Institute) is the main project lead for the CEA.
On June 27, Stanislas Dehaene received an exceptional guest at NeuroSpin: the violinist Zhang Zhang and her band played together ZhangoMusic for an unprecedented evening, mixing music and brain, in front of a conquered public. The artist has enthusiastically lent herself to the different cognitive challenges proposed by Stanislas and his accomplices Laurent Cohen and Lionel Naccache.
The Neuro2Co project, led by INRA Val de Loire whose NeuroSpin is a partner, aims to test the hypothesis according to which the organization of brain connections, the connectome, accounts for behavioral adaptation strategies of different animal species. Under the impetus of this project, 3 science teachers from the secondary-school André Bauchant (37) animate since September 2017 a scientific workshop, the workshop Ciboulot, for students from 5th to 3rd. It is in this context that they came to NeuroSpin on June 12, hosted by Cyril Poupon and his team to achieve the acquisition of images in MRI of a quail brain.
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.
