Catherine Picart (a Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma faculty member, LMGP researcher, and, since September 1, director of healthcare research at IRIG) won the French Academy of Science 2019 Émilia Valori award on October 15. The award recognizes a significant contribution to a field likely to have technological applications.
Picart’s research definitely fits that description: she specializes in self-assembling polyelectrolyte films for bone regeneration, cancer treatment, and high-throughput in vitro cellular screening. “I hope that this research will one day bring benefits to patients and create jobs,” said Picart, who had previously won the CNRS (France’s national center for scientific research) silver medal in 2016.
