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.

UMR 1023 IMIV
The IMIV lab (UMR1023 Inserm/CEA/Université Paris Sud and ERL 9218 CNRS) created on 1st January 2015 is a pluridisciplinary research lab dedicated to In Vivo Molecular Imaging..
The main goals of IMIV are:
Our goal is to perform original proofs of concept in in vivo molecular imaging, validate them in small patient cohorts and then disseminate these methods in France and abroad.
To reach these goals, our plan is as follows:
First, to contribute to significant advances in each of the specialties involved in molecular imaging, namely:
Then, based on these four pillars central to our research, we address specific projects related to molecular imaging and requiring the broad range of expertise gathered in the lab. At the moment, we are involved in three highly innovative transversal projects: neuroinflammation imaging as a ubiquitous process in a number of disease, simultaneous PET-MR imaging, and the LOTUS project aiming at considerably facilitating the production and use of new radiopharmaceutical use for safe and fast evaluation of their clinical value.
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.
