Pulse Biosciences® is a novel bioelectric medicine company committed to health innovation that will improve and extend the lives of patients. The company utilizes its patented groundbreaking Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (NPS™) technology to treat a variety of applications for which an optimal solution remains unfulfilled. NPS is a proprietary technology that delivers nano-second pulses of high amplitude electrical energy to non-thermally clear targeted cells while sparing adjacent non-cellular tissue. The cell-specific effects of NPS technology have been validated in a series of ongoing clinical trials. In addition, early pre-clinical evidence suggests that the NPS technology holds a promising future in immuno-oncology by demonstrating an ability to induce immunogenic cell death.

The CellFX™ System, the company’s first planned commercial product to harness the distinctive advantages of NPS technology, is a multi-application platform designed to address a broad range of dermatologic conditions. The initial commercial use of CellFX procedures will be the clearance of common skin lesions, including sebaceous hyperplasia and seborrheic keratosis– two prevalent and difficult-to-treat benign skin conditions that share high demand among patients and practitioners for improved and durable aesthetic outcomes that lead to greater overall satisfaction.

Hydro-Quebec

Hydro-Québec is a public utility that manages the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Quebec. It was established by the Government of Quebec in 1944 from the expropriation of private firms. This was followed by massive investment in hydro-electric projects like the James Bay Project.

Today, with 63 hydroelectric power stations, the combined output capacity is 37,370 megawatts. Extra power is exported from the province and Hydro-Québec supplies 10 per cent of New England’s power requirements.

Hydro-Québec is a state-owned enterprise based in Montreal. In 2018, it paid CAD$2.39 billion in dividends to its sole shareholder, the Government of Québec. Its residential power rates are among the lowest in North America.
More than 40 percent of Canada’s water resources are in Québec and Hydro-Québec is the fourth largest hydropower producer in the world. The company logo, a stylized “Q” fashioned out of a circle and a lightning bolt, was designed by Montreal-based design agency Gagnon/Valkus in 1960.

Région Occitanie

https://www.regionlrmp.fr

Occitanie is an administrative region of France that was created on January 1, 2016 from the former French regions of Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées. France’s Conseil d’État approved Occitanie as the new name of the region on September 28, 2016, coming into effect on September 30, 2016. The modern administrative region is named after the cultural and historical region of Occitania, which covers a larger area. The region as it is today covers a territory similar to that ruled by the Counts of Toulouse in the 12th and 13th centuries. The banner of arms of the Counts of Toulouse, known colloquially as the Occitan cross, is used by the modern region and is also a popular cultural symbol.

The new region covers an area of more than 72,724 km2 (28,079 square miles), and has a population of 5,626,858. It borders Nouvelle-AquitaineAuvergne-Rhône-AlpesProvence-Alpes-Côte d’AzurAndorra (CanilloEncampLa MassanaOrdino) and Spain (Aragon and Catalonia). [From Wikipedia]

Ecole Pratique des Hautes Études (EPHE)

https://www.ephe.fr

L’École Pratique des Hautes Études est un grand établissement où l’on pratique la recherche en Sciences de la vie et de la terre, Sciences historiques et philologiques, et Sciences religieuses. Son enseignement est dispensé au niveau master, doctorat et post-doctorat ainsi que pour la préparation de son diplôme propre. Elle accueille depuis toujours des auditeurs libres.

L’EPHE couvre des territoires de la connaissance originaux. Participer aux conférences et autres enseignements qui y sont dispensés par plus de 260 enseignants-chercheurs, c’est pratiquer la recherche dans des champs aussi variés que les langues et les religions de l’Asie centrale pré-islamique, les grands monothéismes, l’archéologie chinoise, la paléographie hébraïque ou la dialectologie grecque et les humanités numériques pour les sciences humaines et sociales ; la biodiversité des récifs coralliens, les neurosciences et les cognisciences, l’environnement et la régulation cellulaires pour les sciences de la vie et de la terre… sans oublier les questions transdisciplinaires qui se posent à l’interface de ces grands domaines du savoir.

À sa création en 1868, l’EPHE avait pour mission d’introduire dans le monde universitaire un mode original de formation fondé sur la fréquentation de séminaires et le travail en laboratoire. Elle comprenait alors quatre sections : Mathématiques, Physique et chimie, Sciences naturelles et physiologie, et Sciences historiques et philologiques. Une Ve section de Sciences religieuses y fut adjointe en 1886. La VIe section, dévolue aux Sciences économiques et sociales, créée en 1947, s’autonomisa en 1975 pour devenir l’EHESS. À la même époque, les sections de mathématiques et de physique-chimie furent dissoutes.

Fidèle à sa mission initiale, l’EPHE continue de former à la recherche par la pratique de la recherche, mais en s’adaptant au nouveau paysage scientifique mondial : ses chercheurs et ses doctorants tissent un intense réseau international ; nombre de ses équipes sont contractualisées avec le CNRS ou d’autres organismes ; elle est membre de l’Université PSL où elle collabore avec d’autres prestigieux établissements ; elle est partie prenante du projet Campus Condorcet, la Cité des humanités et sciences sociales qui se bâtit à Aubervilliers.

Attentive aux enjeux sociétaux des questions scientifiques qu’elle étudie, l’EPHE a trois instituts qui offrent des formations et exercent une fonction d’observatoire : l’Institut européen en sciences des religions, l’Institut des récifs coralliens du Pacifique et l’Institut transdisciplinaire d’étude du vieillissement.

L’Institut national de l’environnement industriel et des risques (INERIS) est un établissement public à caractère industriel et commercial (EPIC) créé en 1990 et placé sous la tutelle du Ministère de la Transition Ecologique et Solidaire français. Il est pour 80 % l’héritier du CERCHAR, Centre d’Etudes et Recherches des Charbonnages de France (1947-1990) et pour 20 % de l’IRCHA, l’Institut National de Recherche Chimique Appliquée. Sa mission est d’évaluer et de prévenir les risques accidentels ou chroniques pour l’homme et l’environnement liés aux installations industrielles, aux substances chimiques et aux exploitations souterraines. L’établissement compte deux sites, l’un a Verneuil-en-Halatte dans l’Oise (avec une grande partie des salariés) et un autre à Nancy. Il dispose également d’équipes à Bourges, Lyon et Aix-en-Provence.

Société Française de Radioprotection (SFRP)

La Société Française de Radioprotection (SFRP) est née en 1965 de la fusion de deux précédentes Sociétés : la Société de Radioprotection créée sur l’initiative du Docteur Henri Jammet et la Section Française de la Société Américaine “Health Physics Society” mise en place par Monsieur Francis Duhamel. Le général Norbert Chassende-Barroz fut le Président fondateur de la SFRP. La déclaration de création, sous le régime des associations sans but lucratif, a été déposée en préfecture le 18 février 1965. La Commission Juridique et du Règlement veille à la conformité des actions de l’Association au regard des statuts et des règlements intérieurs.

La revue ” Radioprotection ” a été créée en 1966 avec pour objectif d’être la revue scientifique française consacrée à la Radioprotection, mais aussi le bulletin officiel de l’Association. La Commission de la Revue, qui assure la réalisation des quatre numéros annuels, a su préserver, au cours du temps, cette double vocation.

Depuis son adhésion, en juin 1965, à l’Association Internationale de Radioprotection (IRPA), la SFRP a constamment contribué à la promotion de la radioprotection française au plan international. Dans la composition actuelle du conseil exécutif de l’IRPA, le poste de secrétaire général est tenu par Bernard Le Guen membre du conseil d’administration de la SFRP. Dans ce cadre, l’Association entretient des relations privilégiées avec des Sociétés européennes, en vue d’échanger les expériences et contribuer en commun à la mise en œuvre des concepts, de la réglementation et des techniques de la radioprotection. Ainsi, par exemple, la SFRP organise régulièrement, en France ou à l’étranger, des manifestations en collaboration avec les Sociétés belge, britannique, espagnole, germano-suisse et italienne affiliées à l’IRPA. La SFRP a adopté le code de l’éthique de l’IRPA. La SFRP compte 1300 membres actifs et une dizaine de membres bienfaiteurs.

Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM)

http://www.inserm.fr

The Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm, the French National Institute of Health & Medical Research) is the only public sector research institution in France exclusively dedicated to human health. Under the dual aegis of the Ministries of Health and Research, Inserm has a budget of 998 million euros and employs 15,000 scientists, engineers and technicians all with one shared objective, namely to promote health—by advancing knowledge about living organisms and their diseases, developing innovative treatment modalities and conducting research on public health.

Inserm has more than 365 research units spread across France and internationally. These are supported by 13 Regional Commissions for local oversight. Scientific activities are organized around 9 “Inserm Thematic Institutes”, corresponding to the main fields of biomedical and health research.

Since its foundation in 1964, Inserm has played a part in many key, historic medical advances, including the first prenatal diagnostic tests, how the HLA system works, the first in vitro fertilisation, identification of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, radiotherapy for cancer, the first skin grafting, deep brain stimulation and gene therapy.

Inserm is the leading academic patent applicant in European biomedical research, the 6th applicant in France across all sectors, the 2nd in the field of biotechnology and the first in pharmaceuticals (2016 European Patent Office figures).

In 2016, Inserm held a portfolio of 1,555 live patent families. Inserm Transfert, its private subsidiary responsible for managing the Institute’s intellectual property, has issued licenses for over a quarter of this portfolio to companies in France and around the world (including big commercial health care groups, intermediate-sized enterprises, SMEs or start-ups). On average, some ten spin- off companies are created each year.

In 2016, Inserm was the 9th most innovative public sector research institution in the world, according to Thomson-Reuters
