A team at NeuroSpin, in collaboration with the University of Ülm (Germany), published a study in Nature Communications that suggests the existence of multisensory correlation detectors in the human brain.
In an exploratory study, a team from SPI used mass spectrometry to analyze the gut microbiota profile of Covid-19 patients and to search for signature markers of SARS-CoV-2 gut infection using functional metaproteomics. These markers could be used to follow the evolution of the disease.
A study led by NeuroSpin researchers proposes an optimized delineation of rare brain tumors, based on a combined approach of object detection and deep learning segmentation in tumor images, a key step in the characterization of cancers.
NeuroSpin researchers propose a new version of their compressed MRI acquisition algorithm, SPARKLING, extended to 3D imaging. Their method reduces acquisition time by a factor of 20 for T2*-weighted scans without compromising image quality.
The ptairMS software, developed in the framework of a collaboration led by the CEA-Joliot, allows the processing and analysis of proton transfer mass spectrometry data, an ideal method for the real-time study of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in exhaled breath.
Researchers at the LIAA (SPI/DMTS) show that the initial route of sensitization to a food allergen (oral, respiratory, cutaneous) directly influences the nature of immune responses at multiple sites in the body.
Researchers from the SHFJ and the DMTS have developed optimized radioligands for immunoPET imaging. The objective is to better predict the effectiveness of anti-PD1/anti-PDL1 immunotherapy used to fight certain cancers.
Researchers from the SCBM describe a hydrogen isotope labeling process that is easy to implement and whose starting point is a "simple" mixture, in a solvent, of the product to be labeled with a pre-catalyst. Explanations of this process which finds applications in many fields including drug development or medical imaging.
A team from BioMaps (SHFJ), in collaboration with several hospital groups, shows that hybrid PET/MRI imaging significantly improves the detection of epileptogenic foci and, consequently, the outcome of surgical treatment of epilepsy.
A consortium of researchers, led by SPI/DMTS, presents ProMetIS, a pilot study for the deep phenotyping of murine models by combining proteomic and metabolomic approaches. A significant advance for the functional characterization of genes and the development of bioinformatics integration approaches.
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.
