Date:5/5/2010

The prestigious Pierre Delmas Prize: An ESCEO-IOF/Servier Achievement Award was awarded today to Professor Pierre Jean Meunier, Professor Emeritus at the Claude Bernard University of Lyon, France.

This important new annual scientific award is named in honour of the late Pierre D. Delmas, the world renowned researcher and co-founder of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF). The grant of 40,000 Euros, courtesy of Servier, is awarded to Professor Meunier in honour of his outstanding and major scientific contributions to the study of bone and mineral diseases.

In presenting the award, ESCEO President Professor Jean-Yves Reginster lauded Professor Meunier for his influential work in the field of osteoporosis and rheumatic diseases as well as his eminent role as a mentor and editor in the bone arena. "Indeed it is especially fitting that this award goes to Professor Meunier, as he was an early and influential mentor to the young Pierre Delmas," stated Professor Reginster.

Servier CEO Dr. Jean-Philippe Seta congratulated the winner and noted, "In sponsoring this Prize, Servier underlines its commitment to furthering advances in rheumatology and osteoporosis treatment."

Professor Meunier has published more than 370 scientific manuscripts and books, and is recipient of several important awards including the IBMS John Haddad Prize and the ASBMR Frederic C. Bartter Award. He was named Officer of the Ordre des Palmes Acadmiques, awarded by the French government for services in education. Among many notable positions, Professor Meunier was the President of the European Foundation for Osteoporosis (from 1990-1996), Founder and Director of an INSERM Research Unit on the pathology of calcified tissue, Founding Board Member of the International Osteoporosis Foundation and Founder and Honorary President of the Groupe de Recherche et d'Informations sur les Ostoporoses (GRIO).

The award was presented at the opening ceremony of the World Congress on Osteoporosis 2010 (IOF WCO-ECCEO10) in Florence, Italy which continues on to May 8, 2010.
