Inserm Grand Prix

This prize pays tribute to French scientific researchers whose work has enabled outstanding progress to be made in our knowledge of human physiology, therapeutics and more widely, the field of health.

This year, it has been awarded to Yehezkel Ben-Ari, founder and honorary director of Inserm Mediterranean Institute of Neurobiology (Inmed) in Marseilles.
