Cereus Biosciences

A start-up of the Carnot Curie Cancer Institute, Cereus Biosciences aims to become a leader in the discovery of shared neoantigens for cancer vaccination by exploiting the untapped potential of the unmapped two-step "Dark Genome" genome. The first step is a complete, unreferenced silico exploration of the transcriptome of cancer (pancreas) cells on a state-of-the-art computing platform to identify novel neoantigens. 
The second step is a laboratory test to produce the neopeptides and validate their immunogenic properties on patient cells at Institut Curie. After a concept test on uveal melanoma, Cereus is now focusing on pancreatic cancer, an unmet medical need, with 500,000 deaths per year worldwide, validated and shared neoantigens, ready to be licensed to a pharmaceutical partner for clinical development of ready-to-use cancer vaccines.

Quantum computing and IT


 Authentication of the material against fraud.

The marking technology developed by INOOCQ, a start-up of the Cea Leti Carnot Institute, is based on the production of bio-inert synthetic markers. The associated detection is developed on smartphones thanks to the analysis of the material itself developed at the CEA. All 2 parts of this technological proposal that can be integrated into the formulation of industrial products (glues, cosmetics, medicines, agri-food products, etc.) constitute a set that meets the criteria of strategic sustainable development for any current company and allows the authentication of products that may confuse counterfeits.

There is a gap between reported intentions and actual behaviors, with 73.5% of reported purchase intentions never materializing. Thus, brands base their marketing strategies on misleading data. Advanced techniques like neuromarketing could refine knowledge of customer preferences, but they tend to be invasive, expensive, and time-consuming.

Igonogo, created by Candice François and Florian Loeser by merging their thesis (Carnot Cognition), uses AI to detect subtle finger movements, revealing customers' unspoken thoughts and emotions. The unique Made in France solution merges the simplicity of online surveys with precise behavioral measures developed in the lab, offering unique insights into customers' true thoughts. Its user-friendly AI technology captures subtle finger movements, revealing deep feelings and emotional reactions. These are displayed in real-time on a dashboard, generating actionable recommendations to better understand customers' true desires.

ALTRANS ENERGIES, a start-up created in November 2020, is the result of fifteen years of research within the GIPSA-lab laboratory (Grenoble INP-UGA and CNRS) and in collaboration with the LSI and Energies du futur Carnot Institutes. The innovation is based on quantum algorithms to fine-tune fault precursors in electrical cables, such as partial discharges, through their quantum-level interference with a broadband waveform propagating through the network. Quantum metrics allow a very precise localization of incipient defects as well as the classification of defects through an artificial intelligence approach based on the descriptors defined by these quantum metrics. 

Our technology enables autonomous, continuous and global monitoring of weak points in power grids (from high to low voltage). Thanks to this monitoring, it is therefore possible to identify future failures in detail and in advance and it fully contributes to the objectives of predictive maintenance of cable networks.
