The French Académie des Sciences
Ever since it was created in 1666, the Academy has been resolutely committed to the advancement of science and has advised government authorities in those matters and issues deemed within its remit. It is a double calling that has been reinforced over time, as and when our knowledge base itself progressed. Today, the Academy’s Members discharge their missions, to the Nation and the Academy’s foundations, in standing committees and working groups set up by the Academy.
Since 2017, Seqens and the French Academy of Sciences implemented a partnership with the “Seqens prize.” This award targets the field of “therapeutic chemistry and/or pharmacochemistry related to the mechanisms of chemical drugs.” It honors an innovation, a breakthrough or a new approach in the field of small synthetic molecules with therapeutic value. This prize is awarded to a scientist working in a public or private French laboratory.
