ENGINEERINGNET.EU -- The pharmaceutical company Sanofi and the Institut Pasteur have created new awards (each 480,000 euros) that will support four innovative research projects demonstrating real progress in the life sciences and providing answers to major healthcare problems.

“With these awards, the Institut Pasteur confirms its commitment to the greater interest by encouraging research, notably in conditions affecting the most vulnerable populations and diseases sharply on the rise in the world,” said Alice Dautry, President of the institute.

Sanofi and the Institut Pasteur have a long history of partnership which reflects Louis Pasteur philosophy which states that "Pure research and applied research are not separate entities. Research and its applications are united together as the fruit of the tree is united with the branch that bears it”.

Candidates can submit their applications by April 20, 2012. The prices will be awarded in November 2012 at the Institute Pasteur in Paris.
