SIlicon Carbide NAnoProbes and optical Signal Enhancement for intracellular transport investigation in 3D cultures of neurons – SINAPSE
In this project, we propose to analyze the optical response of SiC nanocrystals excited in the infrared (second window of transparency of biological tissues). Such nanoprobes can be used to analyze the intracellular movement of vesicles in 3D neural networks. The project plans to develop an agile microscope to detect these nanoprobes in deep tissues, but also to take advantage of metallic nanoantennas to enhance the optical signals from the probes.

Bioterra : control of the microbial proliferation on earth bio-based products for healthy and sustainable buildings – BIOTERRA
The BIOTERRA project addresses two major issues of the construction: <br />- The use of materials with low environmental impact for the construction of healthy , comfortable and durable habitats (bio-based earth construction materials (bricks and plaster)) <br />- The indoor air quality by controlling microbial proliferation that could have impacts on the health of the résidents.
A new generation of robots inspired by the swimming of aquatic snakes has recently emerged in academic contexts. Thanks to their exceptional manoeuvrability, they could intervene urgently in complex situations. However, despite this potential, their surface stability is too precarious. The SSSNAEQ project aims to remove the scientific barriers to surface instability by taking inspiration from snakes,

ABSOLUte asymmetric synthesis by means of CATalysts supported on extremely chirally-amplified supramolecular scaffolds – AbsoluCat
A general approach towards absolute asymmetric syntheses achieved by rational design. All industrial processes rely on chiral precursors to produce new chiral compounds and this paradigm is a severe limitation of asymmetric synthesis. Absolute asymmetric synthesis, i.e. the preparation of enantiopure compounds without the help of any chiral species, is still very limited. A general approach towards absolute asymmetric syntheses would thus constitute an important breakthrough.
Parsimony, Huge Observations of Earth Non-stationarities from Images Time Series
Sequence and structure of the packaging signals of the influenza A virus genome. The genome of influenza A viruses consists of 8 vRNAs that associate to a polymerase complex and multiple copies of nucleoprotein. The 8 resulting ribonucleoproteins are selectively incorporated in the viral particles thanks to the presence of packaging signals on each vRNA.
The effects of family policy on labor supply and fertility decisions: Evidence from a dynamic structural micro-economic model with task-specific human capital, estimated using microdata for France and Germany – FamPol

The social uses and stakes of genetic analysis as drawn upon in judicial and police investigations in France: production and administration of evidence at the intersection between forensics and law; analysis of how the balance between respecting individual rights and keeping populations safe is socially defined and discussed; study of the changing set of boundaries between the biological and the social, the ethical and the political, the local and the global.
