The Prix Galien

Soon 50 years of excellence and prestige 

It is to France that the initiative to have created in 1970 a prize of pharmaceutical research whose reputation and influence have since made it the world’s biggest distinction in this field: the Prix Galien.

The Prix Galien rewards, each year, recent therapeutic innovations made available to the public as well as pharmaceutical research.

It thus contributes to the promotion and stimulation of drug research and encourages the laboratories and the teams that make it progress.

The interest of the public authorities, in particular of the Ministers of Health, Research or Industry and its audience abroad, encourages laboratories and teams to mobilize ever more to obtain this distinction.

While the prestige of the Galien Prize has grown over the years, it is thanks to the members of the various juries who have eminent experts and specialists in each category. Thanks to their selection of laureates, they have been able to accurately reflect the therapeutic movement in France for more than half a century and showcase the most effective medicines and teams. The notoriety of the members of the jury, their scientific rigor, their independence, made it possible to assert to the health sector and the public authorities the institutional character of the Prix Galien. For many years it has been an example beyond the borders of our country.

Si le prestige du prix Galien s’est accru au fil des ans, c’est grâce aux membres des différents jurys qui comptent d’éminents experts et spécialistes dans chaque catégorie. Ils ont su, par leur choix de lauréats refléter fidèlement le mouvement thérapeutique en France depuis plus d’un demi-siècle et mettre en valeur les médicaments et les équipes les plus performants. La notoriété des membres du jury, leur rigueur scientifique, leur indépendance, a permis d’affirmer auprès du secteur de la santé et des Pouvoirs publics le caractère institutionnel du prix Galien. Il est, depuis de nombreuses années pris comme exemple au-delà des frontières de notre pays.
