NeuroSpin is a research center built to develop and validate neuroimaging using ultra-high Magnetic Field headed by Dr. Denis Le Bihan, a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. It was opened on January 1st 2007. The center is recognized as a large infrastructure, for biomedical imaging, such as the CERN in Genève. It is a shared imaging facility with unique imaging devices,. An 11.7T MRI scanner for human will be installed in 2016, one of the first in the world.
The Institute of Biomedicale Imaging take part in three projects: CATI, INUMAC project and Human Brain Project.
Toutes les faits marquants de l'I²BM
UNIACT (Translational and Applicative Neuroimaging Research Unit) research aims to adapt and validate in various human pathologies the imaging concepts and methods developed in healthy subjects or in animals to translate them into clinical tools (imaging biomarkers for disease prediction, diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic follow-up).
Main pathologies targeted by the residents teams of clinical researchers (with INSERM and Paris Universities), in collaboration with regional Hospitals are neurodegenerative diseases (mostly Alzheimer disease) and adult neurological disorders (multiple sclerosis, dementias, including CADASIL…), in collaboration with Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, Lariboisière Hospital and Sainte-Anne Hospital, psychiatric diseases (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism), in collaboration with Henri Mondor Hospital and the Fondation FondaMental, and neurodevelopmental disorders in children (such as epilepsies, neonatal stroke, brain tumors, cognitive deficiencies, rare diseases…), a specificity of Neurospin, in collaboration with Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital, Robert Debré Hospital, Institut Gustave Roussy and Bicêtre Hospital.
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.
