BioMaps researchers compared the diagnostic performance of the rabbit visual pattern observed in 18F-DOPA PET imaging with the standard procedure approved by the international nuclear imaging societies for the diagnosis of parkinsonian syndromes in PET/MRI and obtained encouraging results, which may validate the clinical utility of such a model
Using a dynamic probability learning task and high-field (7T) fMRI, a NeuroSpin team identifies regions in parietal and frontal cortex involved in the neural representation of prediction confidence during human learning
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
En 2017, des chercheurs du CEA découvraient une enzyme à la propriété rare : activée par la lumière, elle permet aux micro-algues de convertir leurs acides gras directement en hydrocarbures. Aujourd’hui, avec l’institut Polytechnique de Paris, ils parviennent à comprendre et démontrer que cette enzyme « FAP » peut permettre la production d’hydrocarbures de type essence, grâce à un effet auto-catalytique.
By analyzing brain imaging data, researchers from InDEV (NeuroSpin / UMR NeuroDiderot) have identified recurrent abnormalities in subjects with fetal alcohol syndrome, the combination of which could have a particularly interesting diagnostic value for non-syndromic forms of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
Using UK Biobank imaging-genetics data, a collaborative study led by NeuroSpin found that variation in genomic regions, known as enhancers, could affect the morphology of cortical sulci and be associated with the evolution of locomotion in primates and bipedalism in our hominin ancestors.
The oxidative functionalization of alkenes, hydrocarbons widely used in the chemical industry, remains a challenge. A team from I2BC used an Oxygen Atom Transfer reaction to an alkene and succeeded in capturing the intermediate species of a bio-inspired photocatalyst produced during the reaction.
Researchers from the SHFJ laboratory at ISMO have demonstrated the value of platinum nanoparticles as potential radiosensitizing agents for radiation therapy.
Researchers from the BioMaps laboratory (SHFJ) and the Molecular Engineering for Health Service (SIMoS, DMTS) developed an enzymatic approach for radiofluorination of an anti-PD-L1 Fab and compared its in vivo properties to the same Fab stochastically labeled by two conventional methods.
Researchers from the SHFJ, in collaboration with NeuroSpin, show that the use of focused ultrasound does not increase the therapeutic effects of cetuximab on glioblastoma although the opening of the blood-brain barrier is transiently effective.
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.
