The last two years in scientific news
MIRCen contributed to a study that showed that the use of histocompatible neuronal grafts did not eliminate the need for immunosuppressive drugs in a primate model. Those results provide important knowledge for the clinical use of certain cell therapies under development for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
MIRCen researchers have shown that the intracerebral injection of Alzheimer brain extracts into a primate induces lesions typical of the disease and neurodegenerative processes associated with memory loss.
With 3D histology, researchers from MIRCen highlighted, among nine methods of neuroinflammation PET quantification methods, the optimal performances of one of them.
Researchers from Genoscope have identified about twenty transformation products resulting from the degradation of chlordecone (a compound classed as a persistent organic pollutant) and furthermore demonstrated their presence in French West Indies soils.
Genoscope contributed to a study describing a novel synthesized nucleic acid with a previously undescribed molecular backbone. This new genetic support expands the biotech armamentarium for tomorrow's medicine.
In a study recently published in the journal Molecular Cell, IRCM researchers describe the key elements of a pathway that protects chromosomes from certain radiation-induced rearrangements.
CEA and IRSN presented their research activities in radiobiology, radiopathology, epidemiology and dosimetry in a tripartite seminar organized on 28-29 October 2019 by the QST-NIRS in Chiba, Japan.
NeurATRIS and Dhune are delighted to announce that the next edition of “Translational neuroscience Day: challenges and opportunities”, will be held on December 10, 2019, in Marseille and hosted by BioFit.
France Génomique is proud to announce its first Human Genomics international symposium that will be held in Paris from February 10th to 12th, 2020.
The 8th International Conference on HLA-G will take place at the Ministry of Health and Solidarity (Ministère de la Santé et des Solidarités) in Paris on 8, 9 and 10 July 2019.
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.
