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
The SHFJ is the nuclear medicine facility of the Orsay-Longjumeau Hospital (near Paris). In addition to its mission of healthcare, the center develops research programs for the improving the quantitative performance of molecular imaging based on positron emission tomography (PET), including PET-MR. Research includes developing novel imaging agents, enhancing data analysis methods, and kinetic modelling. These methods are used to elucidate physiopathological mechanisms mostly in brain and cancer imaging , both in clinical and pre-clinical settings.
The SHFJ includes 5 research groups:
"Laboratory for Methodological Developments in Positron Emission Tomography" (a team of the UMR 6301 in Caen)
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.
