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.
All the news of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot
The Service Hospitalier Frédéric Joliot (SHFJ), directed by Vincent Lebon, is a molecular and functional imaging center located on the Orsay hospital site. It ensures a public service mission and a research and development mission in biomedical imaging and in diagnostic and therapeutic innovation. The aim of this research is to create new imaging tools to improve diagnosis and evaluation of innovative therapeutics in three thematic areas :
SHFJ is divided in 3 entities : the Nuclear Medicine Service, that ensures the public service mission of the SHFJ, the In Vivo Molecular Imaging Laboratory (IMIV), a Mixed Research Unit (UMR 1023) belonging to CEA, Inserm and Paris-Sud University and the Laboratory for Methodological Developments in PET (LDM/TEP), based in Caen. The SHFJ has also a branch of the pharmacy for internal use of the Orsay Hospital for 2 activities, namely the preparation of radiopharmaceuticals and the preparations for biomedical research including the experimental medicines one (Arrêté n° 08-065-91 du 23/05/2008).

Moreover, the SHFJ is associated with three other Research Entities (Associated Units) : the Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Multi-Modalities Unit (IR4M), the research team in clinical imaging of neurodegenerative diseases, and the Research Team "Child Epilepsy and Cerebral Plasticity".
To carry out their Research, SHFJ researchers have access to platforms, part of the National Infrastructures in Biology and Health France Life Imaging (FLI) et NeurATRIS financed by the Programme of Investments for the Future (PIA) :
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.
