LIMMS Feature Story in UTokyo Research

UTokyo Research has published a feature story about LIMMS on the website of the University of Tokyo

LIMMS 4-Year Review Workshop and EUJO-LIMMS Final Workshop - Sept. 28 and 29, 2015 at CNRS, Paris

Save the date. The LIMMS 4-Year Review Workshop and the EUJO-LIMMS Final Workshop will be organized back-to-back on September 28 and 29, 2015 at CNRS in Paris. On September 28, LIMMS will share its achievements from the past 4 years and discuss its current scientific challenges. On September 29, the EUJO-LIMMS team will introduce all results from its extensive structuring effort of the first European Union Laboratory in Japan. Hosted European researchers will introduce the joint projects and new applications they could develop in Japan.

Le Journal du CNRS (2015/02/03)- Des micro-machines contre le cancer

Faire progresser la recherche médicale grâce à la microtechnologie, ce n’est plus de la science-fiction. Contre le cancer, d’invisibles dispositifs électromécaniques permettront bientôt de dépister plus tôt la maladie et de mieux la combattre … (Les travaux de recherche de Liviu Nicu (LAAS), Dominique Collard (LIMMS et SMMIL-E) et Vincent Senez (IEMN))
