Published on

The L'Oréal Foundation, in partnership with the Academy of Sciences and the French National Commission for UNESCO, awarded the 17th Young Talents For Women and Science France 2023 awards, on October 12, to 35 young researchers. This program aims to promote and support the involvement of young women in scientific research.
Congratulations to Suzanne Faure-Dupuy who is one of these 35 young talents, selected from 618 young women researchers of 59 nationalities.

Suzanne is a post-doctoral researcher in the “Biology of phagocytes, infection and immunity” team at Institut Cochin, she studies the effect of the virus responsible for the common cold on macrophages. In the long term, this will make it possible to develop therapeutic targets for patients suffering from chronic lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. As an immunologist and virologist, she is convinced that reactivating the functions of macrophages during infections represents the future of antiviral treatments based on activation of the immune response.

Suzanne is also involved in numerous activities for scientific popularization and dialogue with society, including in schools. By being a source of inspiration for the engagement of young women in scientific careers, Suzanne fully deserves this Young Talents For Women in Science award, and we congratulate her.

“During interventions that I gave in high school, I realized that girls were more hesitant to follow a scientific cursus because of their fear of failure. »
