Europe is committed to better diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with severe forms of cirrhosis. It finances the MICROB-PREDICT consortium, which aims to better understand the role of the human microbiome in the pathogenesis and evolution of cirrhosis. Final goal is to uture personalized therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools. The SPI (Joliot Institute) is the main project lead for the CEA.
On June 27, Stanislas Dehaene received an exceptional guest at NeuroSpin: the violinist Zhang Zhang and her band played together ZhangoMusic for an unprecedented evening, mixing music and brain, in front of a conquered public. The artist has enthusiastically lent herself to the different cognitive challenges proposed by Stanislas and his accomplices Laurent Cohen and Lionel Naccache.
The Neuro2Co project, led by INRA Val de Loire whose NeuroSpin is a partner, aims to test the hypothesis according to which the organization of brain connections, the connectome, accounts for behavioral adaptation strategies of different animal species. Under the impetus of this project, 3 science teachers from the secondary-school André Bauchant (37) animate since September 2017 a scientific workshop, the workshop Ciboulot, for students from 5th to 3rd. It is in this context that they came to NeuroSpin on June 12, hosted by Cyril Poupon and his team to achieve the acquisition of images in MRI of a quail brain.
Several teams from the Frédéric Joliot Institute took part in the sports event of the Paris-Saclay centre on June 22, 2018, a moment placed under the sign of conviviality and good humor. And some of them even won prizes ...
On the 7th and 8th of June were held the second edition of the PhD Days (JDD) of the Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences. In the spirit of previous days, PhD students and researchers met during four half-days to discuss about their work, but also to discover the diversity of topics addressed in our institute and expand their own knowledge.
A SIMOPRO project supported by SATT Paris-Saclay: in vivo validation of the efficacy of the DTR8 molecule, developed and patented at SIMOPRO (Department of Medicines and Technologies for Health) in collaboration with Inserm, as a treatment for glomerulonephritis rapidly progressive.
Last April, a delegation of experts from the DRF visited colleagues at the Butantan Institute of São Paulo, a biomedical research center that has had close links with several researchers at the Joliot Institute since 2014. This mission is is concluded by the signing of a framework agreement between the two institutes in the field of therapeutic and vaccine innovation.
The first CEA functional genomics symposium was held on April 4-5. The meeting, led by the CNRGH (National Center for Research in Human Genomics), took place on the CEA site in Fontenay-aux-Roses. Many researchers from the Frédéric Joliot Institute were invited.
The 20th edition of the Brain Awareness Week at NeuroSpin, from March 12th to 16th, was marked by a record number of visitors attending conferences and visiting the department. This success, also present at the national level, shows the growing interest of the public for neuroscience and hopes for advances in brain research.
On the 15th of March, the CNRS awarded the silver medal to Ghislaine Dehaene-Lambertz for her research on brain mechanisms of infants and young children in learning.
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.
