On Tuesday 21 November, the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation announced the 2nd Impulscience® awards, its programme to support researchers in the life sciences, and the 2023 winner of the Liliane Bettencourt Prize for Life Sciences®, during a ceremony at the Institut de France attended by Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, President of the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, and Prof. Didier Samuel, Chairman and CEO of Inserm, Prof. Antoine Petit, Chairman and CEO of CNRS and Prof. André Le Bivic, Director of CNRS Biology.

Anna Beyeler, an Inserm researcher and head of the “Neuronal Circuits of Anxiety” team at the Neurocentre Magendie, is one of the 7 winners of the Impulscience® awards. Congratulations!

Her research aims to decipher the anatomy and function of the neural networks that underlie anxiety and its disorders, with the ambition of one day being able to regulate them to counter the deleterious effects of these pathologies.
