Early detection and prevention of cardiac dysfunction and heart failure induced by cancer chemotherapeutics – Cardio-oncology
Cardiac dysfunction leading to heart failure can result from anticancer drug-induced cardiotoxicity. It is the second cause of morbidity and mortality among cancer survivors, a group that is growing
The development of a digital laser printing process should make it possible to improve the performance of electronic boards on flexible substrates by increasing the number of integrated functions while maintaining low production costs.
Photochromic inorganic oxides or fluorides are able to indicate the UV dose received by their color change under irradiation. This will involve moving from proof of concept on a particular chemical composition to paints that can be used as UV dose indicators.
Study of the multi-scale piezoelectric behavior of innovative micro- and nano-structured composites – NanoPiC
Piezoelectric composites based on structured ceramics and polymers
A new ALD approach for BN is developed based on the chemical route of polymer-derived ceramics. It consists of 2 steps: (1) ALD deposition of a pre-polymer film with a controlled thickness, (2) post-treatment to convert the ALD deposit into BN. This process allows the fabrication of Van der Waals BN/C heterostructures as well as highly crystallized BN nanostructures. The latter have proven to be very interesting for water purification.
Large spontaneous polarization is a known property of iron ludwigite, but vast possibilities remain to identify and optimize new ferroelectrics/multiferroics in the ludwigite borates family, while getting a deeper understanding of the fundamentals aspects of multiferroicity.
Our project is to develop original experimental and numerical tools allowing a study of the rheological behavior of these materials, from solid regime to flow, integrating a characterization of their microstructure. The study will be carried out on a model material. These coupled studies should allow us to establish the link between microstructure and macroscopic behavior, in order to ultimately develop a complete model of macroscopic behavior of unsaturated granular materials.
Development of new fluorescent phenanthridine-based probes for the site-specific detection and quantification of superoxide radical anion in biological systems – Vivo2
During the last decade, the development of new techniques for the detection of superoxide radical (O2•–) in biological systems has continued to receive increasing attention. O2•– is positioned upstream in most radical cascades leading to Reactive Oxygen and Nitrogen Species and irreversible oxidative damages to biomolecules. Therefore, the ability of rigorous detection of O2•– is of major importance.
The INTROSPECT project is a research collaboration between researchers in computer science and archeology made up of about fifteen people from France (the IRISA and CReAAH laboratories, Inrap and the company Image ET), Université Laval and INRS-ETE
Self-evaluation bias of school competence: risks or opportunities for future academic success? – SchoolBias
Following the conclusion of OECD reports, one of the major problems that the French education system faces, seems to be the construction of negative beliefs of competence and consequently, the incapacity to enable certain students to acquire necessary skills for future academic and social success.The Schoolbias program focused on this problem.It deals with the study of students’ biased judgments about their academic competence and the effects of these judgments on basic learning.
