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.

Les chercheurs montrent que les zones du cortex cérébral dédiées normalement à la lecture s’activent sous l’effet des stimulations chez les personnes aveugles de naissance.
Dans le cadre du projet CONNECT, douze instituts de recherche européens ont établi, à partir de sujets vivants, un atlas décrivant les connexions intracérébrales du cerveau humain.
Des chercheurs du CEA viennent de mettre au point une nouvelle approche pour découvrir des réactions chimiques inédites, basée sur la miniaturisation des expériences et sur l’utilisation d’une nouvelle technique de criblage à haut débit.
The Iseult project magnet being installed at Neurospin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a nominal magnetic field of 11.7 teslas (T) on July 18, 2019. This is a world record for a whole-body magnetic resonance imager (MRI) magnet, the culmination of years of R&D, at the forefront of innovation in the field of superconducting magnets.
In the conscious state, different areas of the brain, even though not physically connected, can be activated simultaneously, achieving a rich repertoire of brain activities. Under general anesthesia, this property is blocked. Regardless of the type of the anesthetic agent, general anesthesia led to a rigid inflexible configuration of information flow within the brain: brain activity is maintained, but is restricted to physical anatomical connections, leaving it without the possibility of generating more flexible information flows.
A CEA research team, headed by Denis Le Bihan, has just used diffusion MRI to reveal the connection between the level of neuronal activity in regions concerned by wake-sleep states in anesthetized rats, and the degree of neuronal swelling in these regions.
A French team has discovered an enzyme which allows microalgae to convert certain of their constituent fatty acids into hydrocarbons using light energy.
On Thursday, 2017 May 4, a giant magnet weighing 130 metric tons will leave the assembly plants in Belfort on its journey to the NeuroSpin research facility at the CEA's Paris-Saclay Center (Essonne).
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.
