Genopole to Welcome Delegates from the Association of University Research Parks in Évry

As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, Genopole is happy to host on June, 20, 2018 a delegation of members of the Association of University Research Parks (AURP) who will be visiting our biocluster as part of its “Insights into Research Parks” (or I2RP) events.

AURP Research Parks
The AURP was created in 1986 and has over 175 members coming in large proportion from university, governmental, not-for-profit and private organisations interested in the development and promotion of research parks and innovation districts. Genopole is a Sustaining Member of AURP and our Director of International Affairs was elected at the Board of AURP in 2017, also co-chairing its International Committee. Holding an I2RP at Genopole is a first of its kind for AURP, as this event is conducted outside the US for the first time.
Day 1 of the I2RP programme at Genopole will comprise presentations by (and visits to) our principal research laboratories and companies located on our main campus in Évry.
Day 2 of this I2RP will be spent on the campus of Université Paris-Saclay, also located at proximity of Evry, and to which Genopole is associated. We are very much looking forward to hosting AURP members on site, as this event is very much part of Genopole’s thrust towards internationalisation of its connections.

Jean-Marc Grognet, CEO

Toronto Health innovation 2018
Toronto Health Innovation Week

As Canada’s largest city, Toronto is home to MaRS Discovery District, with key research hospitals, significant research groups such as the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, a diverse workforce and a growing community of successful health start-ups. This year’s edition of the Toronto Health Innovation Week (THIW) was held on April 9-13.

THIW is the city’s major showcase event for metropolitan players to exchange on the future of health innovation, to meet business partners, to present to investors. THIW also featured a full-day of Life Science Nation’s RESI B-to-B meetings.
Our Director of International Affairs was there to meet Ontario’s Chief Scientist Molly Schoichet, President of Genome Canada Marc Lepage, as well as representatives of MaRS (Toronto’s city center based biocluster), of Ontario Genomics, of Accel-Rx and Teralys.


First Car To Use Global Bioenergies’ Renewable Gasoline

On April 5, 2018, for the first time, Global Bioenergies and Audi used an EN228-compliant gasoline blend containing over 34% of renewable isobutene-derived compounds to fuel the Audi A4 2.0 TFSI model on the Montlhéry test circuit.

Nanoproteomic Analyzer

As reported by Nature Communications, scientists from the Université d'Évry-Val-d'Essonne's Lambe (Laboratory for the Analysis and Modeling in Biology and the Environment) and of the Université de Cergy-Pontoise, Hôpital Lariboisière and Excilone have developed a device to detect and characterise trace concentrations of proteins.
This device is built on a nanoporous proteinic material and is integrated in an electrodes-driven automated system that produces electrical signatures that are specific to sequence and size of proteins. It can also recognise short peptides, even down to the tens of molecules.
Based on the results obtained with this device’s prototype, the hope is that it can be used for the detection of disease biomarkers that remain undetectable with current methods in biological fluids, as well as to measure protein contents in single cells in circulation or in extracellular bodies.
