2021 Research Grants – Winners
Introduced in 2001, Lefoulon-Delalande Foundation research grants are awarded annually to support the work of postdoctoral researchers working full time in cardiovascular science at a French research institute (research internships in other countries are not eligible).
The focus of research may be cardiovascular development, physiology, pathologies, epidemiology, medical therapeutics or surgical therapeutics, excluding research into cancers and metabolic diseases generally, and diabetes and obesity in particular.
Candidates must hold a doctorate or equivalent qualification in medicine, science, pharmacy or veterinary medicine.
A jury of seven French scientists selected the winning candidates: Professors Ziad Mallat (Chairman of the Jury), Gisèle Bonne, Damien Bonnet, Michel Desnos, Anne Eichmann, Rodolphe Fischmeister and Gervaise Loirand.
