Simonetta Gribaldo and David DiGregorio, winners of the 2016 Pasteur Vallery-Radot Prize.
The Pasteur Vallery-Radot Prize was set up by Jacqueline Pasteur Vallery-Radot, the wife of Louis Pasteur’s grandson. Each year, the prize goes to two French Institut Pasteur scientists under the age of 50 who have carried out a major scientific project in the field of biology or physics/chemistry over the last five years.
After consultation with the Institut Pasteur, the two prizes are awarded by the National Library of France, the residuary legatee of Jacqueline Pasteur Vallery-Radot's estate.
At a ceremony attended by Pascale Cossart, Permanent Secretary of the French Academy of Sciences, and Christian Bréchot, President of the Institut Pasteur, these two awards were presented on June 29 to Simonetta Gribaldo, Group Leader in the Molecular Biology of the Gene in Extremophiles Unit, and David DiGregorio, Head of the Dynamic Neuronal Imaging Unit.
