Our History

Our original mission was to contribute to advance the sharing of scientific knowledge in key areas of medical research. Over the years, we organized meetings gathering international specialists working in the fields of Neurosciences, Endocrinology, Longevity and Cancer Science, and award prizes for outstanding work in Science. During this period, we have organised some 250 meetings, published over 100 reports and awarded 145 prizes.
