Professor Jean-Louis Viovy, a Research Director at the Institut Curie in Paris, France, has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the AES Electrophoresis Society in the society’s annual meeting held in San Francisco, CA November 14-16.
The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the fields of electrophoresis, electrokinetics and related areas. The governing board of the society elected Jean-Louis “for his outstanding work on capillary electrophoresis, including chip electrophoresis, of DNA”. Previous winners of this award include Neil Ivory, Pier Giorgio Righetti, Nancy Stellwagen and Kelvin Lee.
Prof. Viovy is Research Director at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in France. Since 1999, he leads within the Institut Curie (UMR168) the MMBM team (Macromolecules and Microsystems in Biology and Medicine) comprising about 25 researchers (permanent, Engineers, PhD students and postdocs). He was awarded the Bronze Medal of the CNRS (1983), the Polymer Prize of the French Chemical Society (1996), the Philip Morris Scientific Prize in 1996 (with F. Caron, D. Chatenay and R. Lavery) and two OSEO Entrepreneurship Awards in 2004 and 2005. He is author or co-author of more than 220 articles (h-factor 45) and 22 patents. He has been involved in seven European projects, including 3 as coordinator. He was recently granted with ERC funding (advanced grant) on the topic of development of artificial organs. He is member of the board of the Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society, which organizes the MicroTAS conference, and was chairman of this conference in 2007 in Paris.
