The ʺLife Manualsʺ series
Advising and transmitting scientifically validated methods to improve health and quality of life
ʺThe goal of Fondation Ipsen is to transmit science to people. Every day thousands of scientists around the world work to make people’s lives better. The impact of their work is often lost on the public — the people scientists are trying to help. With our world-class collaborators, Fondation Ipsen explains scientific advances to the people who most need them. ʺ
