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.
Launched in 2017, the Bachelor of Science program at the École Polytechnique celebrated its second class of graduates on July 16th. Admitted to the best French and foreign higher education institutions, the 63 graduates of this class now form an alumni community of 130 students.
An international collaboration has been awarded a prize by the Royal Society of Chemistry for a device producing fuels from water, CO2 and sunlight. Interview with Martin Foldyna, CNRS physicist at Laboratory of Physics of Interfaces and Thin Films and member of the team.
Created and managed by École Polytechnique alumni, the Polytechnique Ventures fund will invest in innovative technology start-ups from the École Polytechnique's entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem. The fund has closed a first round of financing of €20 millions.
Nicolas Mottis, director of the Executive Master since its launch, is handing over the reins to Cécile Chamaret. In an interview with Dixit, they discuss the factors behind the success of this program launched in 2016 and the next steps in its development.
Christophe de La Taille, director of the OMEGA laboratory, which specializes in advanced microelectronic design, particularly for particle physics, explains the contributions of his field of research to the changes in the semiconductors industry, but also the challenges it faces.
Bruno Cattan, (X1993 and a graduate from Télécom Paris in 1998), details his roadmap, explains how his background will help him in this new mission and highlights the opportunities linked to the rollout of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris.
A study conducted by students from Ecole Polytechnique, scientists from the Hydrodynamics Laboratory and Dassault Systèmes, and doctors from Bichat-Claude Bernard Hospital simulates the airborne spread of pathogens in an intensive care unit room. The aim is to reduce contamination risks for the medical staff.
The improvement of natural language processing algorithms is the core of the work of Alice Martin, a young researcher working on her thesis within the "Next Gen RetAIl" Chair. In order to make them more accurate and richer, she is developing specific neural networks so that they incorporate a degree of uncertainty into their operation.
What impacts do rare climate events have? This was the topic of the round table supported by the " Stress Test " Chair at RESIM 2021. While banking risks due to climate change are now included in the regulations, their impact on people and the environment must be taken into account.
