Researchers at SPI are proposing an innovative multiplexing method for rapid identification of several microbial isolates in a single mass spectrometry analysis. This approach opens up prospects for the large-scale identification of microorganisms resulting from culturomics programs.
Researchers from SCBM (DMTS) and SB2SM (I2BC) describe a novel and optimized approach to the total photoreduction of 13C-labelled CO2 to carbon monoxide (CO), and the immediate reuse of the latter for the synthesis of high value-added compounds. A step towards a radiochemistry of carbon isotopes potentially useful in human health.
Researchers at SCBM have used a click-and-release chemistry approach to mass-release an anti-cancer drug into cells from cleavable nanomicelles, thanks to a bioorthogonal activation process. A step towards the development of new nanomedicines
Researchers at BioMaps evaluated the effect of several factors on the distribution of [18F]DPA-714 in 201 subjects who participated in SHFJ PET imaging protocols to better understand the role of neuroinflammation in various neurological diseases. They conclude that measures of individual metabolism are important in image interpretation.
A collaborative study by NeuroSpin researchers, using anatomical MRI data and a dimensional approach in 850 subjects from the Healthy Brain Network cohort, shows how the social skills of these children and adolescents are linked to the structure of their cerebellum
Researchers at BioMaps (SHFJ) and SPI (DMTS) have studied the pharmacokinetics of a novel immuno-radioligand targeting the endothelin A receptor (ETA), overexpressed in many cancers, particularly glioblastoma. The immunoPET imaging approach used in this study in a preclinical model confirms the theranostic potential of this antibody.
The TIRO laboratory of the SHFJ (Nice) identifies for the first time discriminating biomarkers of high-grade invasive breast tumors, using a non-targeted metabolomics approach performed on surgical specimens and cytoponctions from patients at different stages of malignancy.
NeuroSpin researchers show that spontaneous neuronal oscillations in the 'delta' frequency band (0.5-3 Hz), the wave of unconscious states, can be observed in awake human volunteers using MEG. A step towards characterizing underlying physiological signals?
A team from SIMoS and SCBM, in collaboration with researchers from I2BC, has shown that autophagic degradation is at work when mammalian cells are poisoned by ricin. Stimulating this process could provide additional protection against this deadly toxin.
The SCBM was awarded funding from the Horizon Europe program for the ISOBIOTICS project, coordinated by Christophe Dugave. This project will enable the theoretical and practical training of 11 PhD students, including two at SCBM and one at SHFJ, on the development of innovative methods for the isotopic labeling of biodrugs
A joint team from GHU Paris and BioMaps (SHFJ) conducted a 2-year longitudinal study of 27 people with Alzheimer's disease, tracking the progression of tau pathology measured by PET imaging, of cortical atrophy using MRI, and their links with cognitive decline.
La mise en exploitation de l’IRM 11.7 T Iseult en 2021 a couronné près de 20 ans de recherche et développement du CEA. Dans un article publié dans le journal Magnetic Resonance Materials in Physics, Biology and Medecine, Nicolas Boulant et Lionel Quettier, chefs du projet Iseult pour les instituts Joliot et Irfu du CEA, passent en revue les détails de cette mise en service.
Des chercheurs du SHFJ ont mis au point la radiosynthèse au fluor-18 du crizotinib, un médicament qui ne pénètre pas dans le cerveau. Ce nouvel outil pour l’imagerie TEP permettra d’explorer de futures stratégies visant à faire passer la barrière hémato-encéphalique à ce médicament pour traiter certaines métastases cérébrales.
A team from I2BC shows, by using super-resolution fluorescence microscopy and transmission electron microscopy approaches, that both excess and deficiency of Mn affect the organization of thylakoid membranes and photosynthetic electron transport in the plant Marchantia polymorpha
In an article in the New York Times, Stanislas Dehaene (NeuroSpin director) and Mathias Sablé-Meyer (PhD student) discuss recent results obtained in collaboration with the Collège de France, the CNRS and the University of Paris 8 that show that humans have a universal capacity to understand abstract geometric concepts.
September 2021, the 11.7 Tesla MRI of the Iseult project, the most powerful in the world for human imaging, has just unveiled its first images.
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université , CEA and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of the 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.
