BioPrint: Inserm Launches its Second Accelerator of Technological Research

La création d’Accélérateurs de Recherche Technologique est une priorité du plan d’orientation stratégique de l’Inserm. Ce 12 octobre 2017, l’Inserm inaugure son deuxième ART consacré à la “Bioimpression 3D” à Bordeaux. Il s’agit de la seule unité technologique utilisant les trois principales technologies de l’impression biologique en 3D, à savoir : le laser, le jet d’encre, et la micro-extrusion. Au sein de l’ART se côtoieront chercheurs et ingénieurs, afin de transformer le plus rapidement possible les avancées de la recherche en innovation technologique.

First clinical proof of concept for functional ultrasound imaging of brain activity in newborns

Physicians from Inserm Unit 979 “Wave Physics for Medicine” at the ESPCI Paris together with clinician researchers from the neonatal intensive care unit of Robert-Debré AP-HP pediatric hospital and Inserm Unit 1141 have just made a scientific and medical breakthrough: the non-invasive imaging of brain activity in newborns using ultrasound. This will open up new avenues for bedside neurological diagnosis in full-term and premature babies. The details of their research have been published in the October 11, 2017 issue of Science Translational Medicine.

Identification of a molecular mechanism associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder

A research team in psychiatry at CEA-Neurospin, together with the Mondor Institute of Biomedical Research (INSERM) and the Henri-Mondor (AP-HP) university hospitals, has shown that a genetic variant associated with several psychiatric conditions alters a prefrontal-limbic network, which may increase the risk of developing schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. The results of this study were published online on October 2, 2017 in Journal of Neuroscience.

Biomedical Research Mobilized Around Thomas Pesquet

Space is an extraordinary laboratory for medicine and medical research on Earth. That is why Inserm and the CNES have been working together for more than a year[1] to accelerate research progress to improve the health of all of us. The presence of Thomas Pesquet, French astronaut from the European Space Agency (ESA), on board the International Space Station (ISS) for 6 months gave rise to many experiments, the preliminary results of which support the researchers’ hypotheses and sometimes even surprise them.

Tuesday, October 10, 2017, is National “Dys” Day (dyslexia, dysphasia, dysorthographia, etc.)

The 11th edition of National “Dys” Day will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Created by the Fédération Française des DYS, it mobilizes parents who are members of associations together with professionals from across France. The various learning disabilities that begin with “dys”, and which are now better understood by the general public, affect around 6 million people in France [1](METTRE CHIFFRE). An event is held in Paris each year, attended by around 10,000 people. This year, it will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Université Paris 8.
