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. Born in Cairo in 1943, Yehezkel Ben-Ari was educated in Israel, before settling in France in 1966. Throughout his career, he has worked in different French laboratories with a few periods abroad (England, Norway, Canada). From 1986, he directed unit 29 "Neurobiology and physiopathology of development", at Cochin-Port-Royal hospital. In 1999, he moved with all his unit's researchers, engineers and administrative staff to build and set up, with the assistance of Inserm, Inmed on the Marseilles-Luminy site.

This institute comprises a neurology company incubator, a summer school for house physicians (Hippocrates school), an art gallery and the "All researchers" association militantly in favour of an experimental approach to sciences.

A member of many scientific bodies and learned societies, Yehezkel Ben-Ari, with his employees, has made numerous important discoveries in many fields, in particular brain maturation, epilepsy and stroke. He has already received the American Epilepsy Society Award for his work in 2000. Today, we
