THE DSV AT A GLANCE
The CEA’s Life Sciences Division (‘DSV’) combines basic research and applied technology research to provide key insights in two major community challenges : energy and healthcare.
The DSV participates to the development of low-carbon energy throught its radiobiology, studies in toxicology and bioenergies. It also delivers the healthcare sector with innovative CEA-developed technologies by leading research programs in disciplines ranging from medical imaging and research in genomics, large scale biology, and protein engineering.
Working alongside the CEA teams mandated with public safety missions, the DSV is also conducting research dealing with counter-bioterrorism measures.
The DSV’s strategy hinges on the excellence of its research. The hundreds of works published by DSV teams in international-impact journals each year are some concret proofs of its excellence.
The DSV is committedly engaged in fulfilling its economic responsibilities, and actively leads a policy of finding added value for her research. Open to collaborative programs, the DSV enables both institutional and industry partners to exploit its laboratories and research platforms.
The DSV contributes to the national life sciences strategy, acting… as CEA representative within the French National Alliance for Life and Health Sciences – Aviesan.
The DSV is built around eight institutes and a dedicated research centre, and heads two of the CEA cross-disciplinary research programmes.
