The 9th annual meeting of the SILAB - Jean Paufique Corporate Foundation took place on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at the SILAB offices. Over 100 people attended the afternoon of seminars orchestrated by Brigitte Closs-Gonthier, administrator and scientific director of the Corporate Foundation, surrounded by members from the Scientific Council and company employees.

Unanimously selected by the Foundation's Scientific Council, Jonas Ogien, the 2016 winner, presented his research work. His project entitled "Microscopy by high-resolution, augmented-contrast optical coherence for non-invasive diagnosis of skin cancer" will receive financial support from the Foundation for two years.
The research will be carried out at the Charly Fabry Laboratory in Palaiseau, part of the Optical Institute Graduate School, under the supervision of Arnaud Dubois, Professor in charge of the "Biomedical Imaging Systems" team.

It was also an opportunity to follow the progress of the other research projects currently supported by the Foundation. Laura Cau and Laure Gibot, the award winners in 2014 and 2015, were therefore in attendance, accompanied by their respective sponsors, Marie-Hélène Ratinaud and Vincent Sol.

This year, Elodie Henriet, 2015 winner of the poster prize awarded by the Foundation at the 11th Cancéropôle Grand Sud-Ouest, also took part in the day. She presented her work on "Discoidin domain receptors involvement in melanoma progression and invasion", carried out under the responsibility of Frédéric Saltel, CR1 INSERM, cytoskeleton and cancer team at the GREF in Bordeaux, INSERM Unit 1053.

The scientific conference ended with a cocktail reception where the prize winners, members of the Foundation and SILAB employees were able to enjoy a friendly discussion.
