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.

A NeuroSpin team showed that the mere short-term storage of information may proceed without consciousness or persistent neural activity, but that manipulating information in working memory requires both. This study, thereby reconciling a hotly debated topic in the field of neuroscience, was published in PNAS.
Researchers from I2BC@Saclay, the University of Aarhus and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt reveals the first cryo-EM high-resolution structures of one of the P4-ATPases. Study has been published in Nature. It give a better insight towards the understanding of the transport mechanisms of membrane lipids. A lipid pathway through the protein membrane domain is suggested.
The magnet of the future MRI at 11.7 teslas of the Iseult project at NeuroSpin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a magnetic field of 9.51 teslas during tests carried out on Wednesday 22 May. This new level is a record since the magnet has become on this occasion the most powerful MRI magnet in the world for imaging in humans with a stored energy of 221 MJ. This successful outcome is the result of the work of the Iseult project’s team from the CEA.
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.
