The 6th annual Sanofi – Institut Pasteur Awards recognized the achievements of researchers whose work demonstrate significant breakthroughs in fields where global health issues remain concerning.
Five internationally recognized researchers have been rewarded at the 6th annual Sanofi – Institut Pasteur Awards on December 12 for their major contributions in the service of human health. This year, the awards focused on Immunology and on Microbiology & Infection. The aim of the awards is to recognize outstanding scientific achievement while also helping the laureates to further research that is essential to the development of new therapeutic strategies.
Chaired by Nobel Laureate Professor Elizabeth H. Blackburn, a distinguished Jury from the international scientific community selected the laureates. The outstanding quality of the 2017 applications prompted the Jury to nominate five laureates instead of the four that were initially going to be recognized.
