Scientific highlights

Grapheal : Therapeutics and diagnostics of chronic wounds

Grapheal is a spin-off project of the Institut NEEL. This startup company, currently in the creation phase, aims to develop innovative solutions for treating people with chronic wounds. Typically, chronic wounds are deep skin injuries that do not heal after 4-6 weeks. Large populations are at risk, including diabetics (whose numbers are rapidly rising around the world) as well as the elderly. The recent epidemic of chronic wounds is a major concern, as they are the leading source of necrosis, which can unfortunately lead to amputations. Such wounds are the cause of more than half a million amputations each year worldwide. Full text.

Thermal energy harvesting on a chip : toward autonomous sensors

The measurement of very tiny quantities of heat is essential for a deep understanding of thermal transfer in nanostructures. Fundamental research on "nanothermal" physics, carried out over ten years at the Institut Néel has now given rise to a disruptive technology for harvesting thermal energy at the nanometre scale.
