The Lelio Orci Price has been attributed to Jean-Claude Martinou for his work on the control of mitochondrial organisation and physiology. His research group has made fundamental discoveries on the molecular mechanisms controlling the shape of mitochondria, their ability to import and to process metabolites, and to adapt to various metabolic situations.
The official award ceremony will take place on 15 February 2019 at the LS2 Annual Meeting 2019

The ability of Hydra to regenerate or maintain a single head results from a subtle balance between activating and inhibiting activities. The team of Brigitte Galliot has discovered the identity of the inhibitor and deciphered the dialogue between these two antagonistic activities. This study has been published on January 18, 2019 in Nature Communications.
The team of Paul Guichard and Virginie Hamel has succeeded in reconstructing the frame of a cell’s cilium in vitro. This study, published on January 17, 2019 in Science, reveals the mechanism and dynamics of ciliary structures’ assembly, as well as the crucial role of tubulin in preventing their uncontrolled formation.
