Service Hospitalier Frédéric Joliot




Published on 23 March 2015

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 :

  • oncological diseases,
  • neurodegenerative, neuro-inflammatory, psychiatric and addiction disorders,
  • cardiovascular, metabolic and systemic inflammatory diseases.

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) :

  • PRIME (certified IBiSA) : Experimental Molecular Imaging Research Platform, a platform dedicated to preclinical and clinical molecular imaging,
  • IRM 1,5T : a clinical IRM.
