Fondation Edmond de Rothschild
"The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation for the development of scientific research is primarily to promote the advancement of biology and its applications through the study of physico-chemical phenomena in their links with life. It is also intended to promote the progress of the physical and chemical sciences in general. "
For four generations, the Rothschild family has supported this remarkable institution, whose contributions to the advancement of our understanding of biology are irreplaceable.
The IBPC is no longer under the responsibility of our Foundation since 1997 and its management has been entrusted to the CNRS for a period of 50 years. This evolution has not called into question the support of the Foundation Edmond de Rothschild for the scientific animation of the IBPC. This support which manifests itself through numerous actions undertaken by his Board of directors, under the presidency of Professor Alain Fischer, who I thank deeply for the time that he voluntarily dedicates to the development of this establishment. Supported by its prestigious past, this institute continues to play a leading role in biological research today. I have no doubt that the coming years will be rich in scientific discovery that will mould the future of humanity .
