Seeding Microsystems in Medicine in Lille SMILL-E

SMMiL-E relates to the setting-up and the realization of a comprehensive research program on bioMEMS against Cancer in a sustainable international high-level collaboration.


The project will synergize the bio-MEMS research from LIMMS/CNRS-IIS with the research against Cancer performed in Lille area under the SIRIC ONCOLille program. To reach its objectives, SMMiL-E encompasses the transfer in the Nord Pas-de-Calais region of Bio MEMS type micro technologies stemming from IIS. The bioMEMS technologies will be installed in a platform located in the mere hospital-university area, in order to be in close contact with medical teams with facilitated access to clinical research. The transferred technologies are positioned as a continuation of the advanced technologies of IEMN and would represent for IEMN an extension towards biology and medical applications.


Centre Oscar Lambret - Lille


Centre Oscar Lambret dispenses its activities in healthcare, medical research and teaching in the North of France. Eqipped with state of the art technical platforms and facilities, the hospital center is the first of its kind in terms of clinical research and technological transfert.


Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo,

Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo, is a research institute covering almost all the areas of engineering disciplines.

It is mainly located in Komaba, Meguro-ku, Tokyo. Each of more than 110 faculty members – professors, associate professors and lecturers  has his/her own laboratory and more than 1,000 researchers come to IIS from inside and outside of Japan. They are carrying out various research from fundamental research to applications – which opens future life.
