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.

Very high-resolution MRI will provide particularly detailed images of the brain. However, the acquisition times of MRI data strongly increase with resolution. To solve this problem, the mathematicians at NeuroSpin have developed an algorithm that allows to gain a factor of 20 !
A collaboration between SIMOPRO, Sanofi R & D, Smartox Laboratories and the Thorax Institute, has isolated a toxin with antinociceptive properties from a high-throughput electrophysiological screening of a collection of more than 100 venoms. Cyriotoxin-1a has been identified, sequenced, chemically synthesized and functionally characterized - from cell to organism in vivo.
Facilitating the deuterium and tritium labeling of molecules containing nucleic bases such as many compounds of pharmacological interest? This is what researchers from SCBM in partnership with teams from SPI and Toulouse managed to achieve.
Glioblastoma is a very aggressive cancer of the central nervous system, mainly because of its ability to infiltrate the surrounding areas. A collaboration led by a team of SHFJ and involving NeuroSpin demonstrates the interest of two imaging techniques for the early detection of tumor infiltration.
A team of SB2SM (I2BC@Saclay), in collaboration with the universities of South-Paris and Rennes1, has developed a new, particularly effective catalyst for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2), directly inspired by nature. Results are published in Angewandte Chemie.
An international collaboration led by a team from the ICM (Brain and Spine Institute) shows that it is possible to assess states of consciousness through an imaging process developed at NeuroSpin. This new tool could help to better diagnose alterations of consciousness. The results were published in Science Advances.
A team from SHFJ proposes a predictive model that corrects the "acquisition center" effect thanks to an unprecedented harmonization method in medical imaging.
Researchers from SPI, in collaboration with teams from an European foundation, EF Clif, carried out global and targeted metabolomic analyzes which made possible to highlight, in cirrhotic patients, an activation of the kynurenine metabolic pathway (tryptophan degradation pathway). The imbalance of this pathway is probably the cause of the symptoms observed during cirrhotic decompensation, when the body can no longer compensate for liver dysfunctions.
By using in vivo MRI, researchers at NeuroSpin (GIN-Bordeaux) have been able to evaluate the myelination of nerve fibers in the auditory cortex, area of the brain involved in the processing of language sounds. They observed an asymmetry of myelination in favor of the left hemisphere, in particular according to language performances. They show the usefulness of neuroimaging markers in the study of structure-function relationships at the cerebral cortex level.
Helicenes are synthetic molecules with attractive properties for physicists expert in materials but also for biologists. A collaboration led by chemists from the SCBM (CEA-Joliot) and involving the NIMBE (CEA-Iramis) allowed the synthesis of a particular class of helicenes.
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.
