The Fondation Edmond de ROTHSCHILD-Nine CHOUCROUN Prizeis awarded every two years. The value of the Prize for 2017 is 8,000 euros.
This prize, awarded under the auspices of the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, is aimed at young researchers working in the field of Physical and Chemical Biology who obtained their PhD in 2015 or 2016.

The Nine Choucroun Award
Nine Choucroun, a collaborator of Jean Perrin and Research Director at the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, wished to encourage young researchers to research in the vast field of physico-chemical biology.
An annual prize was created in December 1980 by his heirs; It is aimed at young scientific researchers, aged 30 years at most, French or foreign, working in French laboratories.
This prize, awarded by a jury largely outside the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, rewarded work in various fields: theoretical chemistry, physicochemistry of membranes and nucleic acids, molecular biology of prokaryotes and eukaryotes, Development, cell biology.
In 2010, the Nine Choucroun Prize became Fondation Edmond de Rothschild-Nine Choucroun Prize This prize, awarded under the auspices of the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, is aimed at young researchers working in the field of Physical and Chemical Biology.
