Clinatec Endowment Fund investigating new treatments for Parkinson’s

Deep brain stimulation and infrared illumination appear to be effective at treating Parkinson’s disease. But why? The Clinatec Endowment Fund, through a new research project called Astropark, is looking for insights the cellular mechanisms at play in neurons and astrocytes.

Deep brain stimulation, shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, has been used on tens of thousands of Parkinson’s patients since it was invented 30 years ago by Professor Alim-Louis...

Interview: Léa Di Cioccio, head of the eco-innovation program at CEA-Leti,

We are supporting the development of more sustainable technologies

CEA-Leti offers eco-innovation studies to some of its R&D partners. Why? Léa Di Cioccio:
Environmental regulations–both in France and across Europe–are one of the factors driving demand for this kind of study among our R&D partners.
SMEs have expressed a real need for support.
Fabless manufacturers are seeking insights that will help them work more effectively with semiconductor foundries.
And, while reducing carbon emissions is still their priority, corporations are also getting curious about leveraging...
