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.

Federating more than thousand European and international research institutions, the HBP associates specialists in cognitive sciences, neurosciences, molecular biology, medicine, physical sciences, mathematics, science computing and ethics, an essential interdisciplinary approach because brain is complex and it necessary to describe it at several levels (genetics, synapsis or cell) and in various anatomical scales.
The HBP is a large 10-year scientific research project, coordinated by Henry Markram and Philippe Gillet (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
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.
