Four Young Women Researchers Awarded the L'Oréal-Unesco Young Talent Prize

Four young female researchers, either from Sorbonne University laboratories or who have received academic degrees from Sorbonne University, were awarded the L'Oréal-UNESCO Young Talents Prize for Women in Science on Thursday, October 7, 2021.

Since its creation in 2007, this program has been identifying and rewarding young female researchers in doctoral and post-doctoral studies that are engaged in fields as varied as medicine, biology, astronomy, chemistry, physics and computer science.
This year, 35 young women researchers were rewarded by the members of the Academy of Sciences' selection jury.
Among them, four earned degrees at Sorbonne University, or work in our research teams. Congratulations!

  • Anaïs Abramian, post-doctoral fellow at the Institut Jean Le Rond D'Alembert (Sorbonne University, CNRS)
  • Lauren Reynolds, post-doctoral candidate at the Institut de biologie Paris-Seine (Sorbonne University, CNRS, Inserm)
  • Laura Scalfi, PhD candidate at the Physicochemistry of electrolytes and interfacial nanosystems laboratory (Sorbonne University, CNRS)
  • Cécile Tran Kiem, PhD candidate at the Sorbonne University Doctoral College

The Faculty of Medicine teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site includes a midwifery school.

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).
