The Claude Paoletti Prize is awarded in memory of Claude Paoletti, former Director of the Life Sciences Department at the CNRS and founder of several initiatives to support young researchers. The prize is given to a young researcher in any biological discipline.
This year, the prize was awarded to Elisa Gomez Perdiguero, head of the Macrophages and Endothelial Cells five-year group, for her research on the embryonic origin of tissue-resident macrophages. She shares the prize with Hugues Nury, a member of the Membrane Transporters Group at the French Institute for Structural Biology.
The prize was presented on 2015, December 2.
