Short description

The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Center for Scientific Research) is a government-funded research organization, under the administrative authority of France's Ministry of Research. Founded in 1939 by governmental decree, CNRS has the following missions: * To evaluate and carry out all research capable of advancing knowledge and bringing social, cultural, and economic benefits for society * To contribute to the application and promotion of research results * To develop scientific information * To support research training * To participate in the analysis of the national and international scientific climate and its potential for evolution in order to develop a national policy CNRS research units are located throughout France, and employ a large body of tenured researchers, engineers, and support staff. Laboratories are all on renewable four-year contracts, with bi-annual evaluation. There are two types of labs: * CNRS intramural labs: fully funded and managed by CNRS (called UPR, or unités propres de recherche, in French) * Joint labs: partnered with universities, other research organizations, or industry (called UMR, or unités mixtes de recherche, in French)

    Secret messages hidden in light-sensitive polymers

    DNA is a long chemical sequence that carries genetic information. Inspired by this biological system, in recent years many research teams have been exploring how to store and then decode information within synthetic macromolecules, also called polymers. In a leap forward in this field, rese ... more

    For a Better Contrast

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has emerged as one of the most powerful clinical imaging tools because of its superb spatial resolution and soft tissue contrast, especially when using contrast agents. In the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, scientists have presented a new kind of n ... more
