CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission) has announced the creation of the French nanobiotechnology cluster.

The official launch was made on September 9th with the signature of a real estate operation dedicated to host equipments and research teams in Grenoble close to the Minatec facilities.

The cluster, called NanoBio, gather three research partners: University Joseph Fourier, Hospital of La Tronche and CEA.

A first phase is going to be funded by local authorities (Metropolitan Area of Grenoble, Rhone-Alpes Region, Isere Department and City of Grenoble) for a total amount of 23,5 M€.

NanoBio will bring together engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists and medical doctors to develop miniaturised tools for biological and medicine applications: biochips, lab-on-chips, and biosensor.

The aim of NanoBio is to foster the technological and economical development in the bioengineering field, taking advantage of the CEA’s 10-years experience in biochips and bioMEMS research.

NanoBio is created in synergy with Minatec. It will also work in deep connection with Lyon Biopole.

LETI(Laboratory of electronics and information technologies) has dedicated a full department (120 persons) to micro and nanotechnologies for Biology and healthcare, and conducts research projects aimed at technology transfer.
