Easy to use in the laboratory, CRISPR/Cas9 is a tool for altering the DNA of cells at precise locations. Each year, the "Personalised reconstruction of the tumour process" sponsorship teaches its mechanisms through new application cases of the evolution of a healthy cell into a cancer cell.
An immersive audio game has been developed at the Centre for Applied Mathematics. It places the player in the shoes of a Jedi knight where the smartphone becomes a lightsaber. The prototype of this game will be demonstrated at the next Fête de la science.
Recharging lithium batteries is a major challenge for the railway sector. Ahmed Shokry, a research engineer at X within the "AI and Positive Maintenance" research initiative, is exploring the use of artificial neural networks to optimise battery recharging and extend their life and reliability.
Launched in 2016, the Master of Science and Technology in Data Science for Business taught jointly by École Polytechnique and HEC Paris ranks third out of 120 comparable programs worldwide for its first ranking by QS.
In August, the National Ignition Facility in the USA announced a record in inertial confinement fusion. France Culture's "La Méthode scientifique" programme looked into the subject, with contributions from researchers at the Intense Lasers Laboratory and the Centre for Theoretical Physics.
Centered on “Science and Technology Innovation for a Sustainable Future”, the third part of the virtual roundtable series brought together students, research professors, and university administrators from U7+ member universities worldwide.
Two groups of students presented their Collective Scientific Projects at the Artificial Intelligence Platform, a major conference in this field of research. These projects, carried out with the Chair of Science and Video Games, focused on dialogue generation and on the control of creature movement by neural networks.
Charles Marteau has been awarded a prize by the French Physical Society for his thesis, which addresses the theories of gravitation in a space-time with a boundary, thanks to the holographic principle.
To replicate in cells, the SARS-CoV-2 virus interacts with different proteins and nucleic acids (DNA or RNA). A research consortium involving researchers from the Laboratory of Optics and Biosciences has just identified a specific interaction that paves the way for new antiviral compounds.
Two projects by École Polytechnique students were awarded prizes by the IBIS competition on bio-inspired innovation organised by the Ile de Science Paris-Saclay association. The goal is to observe nature in order to design new technologies or strategies.
Grégory Nocton, a CNRS researcher at the Molecular Chemistry Laboratory and a lecturer at the Ecole Polytechnique, has just received the young researcher prize from the coordination chemistry division of the Société Chimique de France. This is recognition for his work on lanthanide-based organometallic molecules.
A new method allows to study parchments without touching nor destroying them. The approach, which scientists from the Optics and Biosciences Laboratory helped develop, uses non-linear optical microscopy.
Claudine Hermann, the first woman to be appointed professor at the École Polytechnique, died on July 17th. A renowned physicist, she devoted her career to teaching and research and was committed to promoting women in sciences.
