Scientific Description
The research center for 'Infectious Disease Models and Innovative Therapies' (IDMIT) at the CEA site, in Fontenay-aux-Roses was created by the Life Sciences Division of the CEA, the Institut Pasteur, the 'Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale' (INSERM), the 'Agence Nationale de Recherche sur le SIDA et les Hépatites Virales' (ANRS), Université Paris Sud 11 (UPS-11) and Bertin Pharma. The center is dedicated to preclinical research programs on human vaccines and antimicrobial treatments. It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for animal studies and in vitro assays. The infrastructure also develops advanced technologies for monitoring infections and host responses, including in vivo imaging in BSL3 containment (near infra-red fluorescence, confocal endo-microscopy, two-photon microscopy, PET-CT) and complex cell phenotyping (CyTof). The center is targeted at the academic and industrial scientific communities.
