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...
All the news of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot
Timo van Kerkoerle, researcher at NeuroSpin, is one of the 408 winners of the prestigious ERC Starting Grant 2022 call of the European Research Council. Another European success for the Institute.
A consortium of researchers, including SPI/DMTS metabolomics specialists, presents PeakForest, a database of NMR and mass spectra, which provides storage and annotation services for spectra of reference compounds and metabolic profiles of biological matrices. An open resource to address the evolving needs of the discipline.
An I2BC team has analyzed, at the genome scale of the yeast S.cerevisiae, the functional interactions between the Mediator of gene transcription and DNA repair proteins, reinforcing the idea that these two fundamental cellular processes are closely linked.
Researchers from SIMoS and SPI (DMTS) demonstrate that molecular engineering of llama antibodies, capable of neutralizing SARS-CoV-1, allows to obtain optimized antibodies with very high affinities for SARS-CoV-2 and its variants, the culprits of the Covid-19 epidemic.
The participative study on our time perception during the confinement, led by Virginie van Wassenhove (NeuroSpin), provides the first open database, Blursday, which analyzes the nature of the alterations in our relationship to time during physical and social distancing, as we experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
By measuring fMRI responses to written words, faces, houses and checkerboards in three groups of children, pre-readers and beginning readers aged 6 and advanced readers aged 9, a team from UNICOG (NeuroSpin) shows that reading acquisition recycles and specializes a pre-existing but plastic visual circuit connected to language areas.
A team from SIMoS, in collaboration with the SCBM (DMTS), has developed an original bioanalytical approach based on the double 14C-3H isotopic labeling of an antibody-drug conjugate, allowing the simultaneous in vivo monitoring of the two components in mouse models as well as their precise quantification in the organs.
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.
Le projet EXPERIENCE cherche à utiliser la réalité virtuelle pour améliorer la vie quotidienne en permettant de nouvelles formes d’interaction sociale et d’expression personnelle.
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.
