Jean-Philippe Girard is among the Highly Cited Researchers 2022 in the Immunology category
Specialist in the analysis of scientific production, Clarivate identifies each year the most influential researchers in the world. The “Highly Cited Researchers” are thus the researchers whose work is the most cited, typically those having several articles in the top 1% of citations in their field during the last decade in the “Web of science ™”. This list is used in the famous ranking of universities in Shanghai.
Once again a member of the list of “Highly Cited Researchers” (2022), Jean-Philippe Girard, Inserm research director, head of the team “Vascular Biology: Endothelial cells in Immunity, Inflammation and Cancer” at the IPBS-Toulouse (CNRS-Université Paul Sabatier), is, for the third time, one of the most influential researchers in Immunology.
Corinne Cayrol, laureate of the National Academy of Medicine
On December 17th in Paris, Dr. Corinne Cayrol received the Edouard Bonnefous Prize 2019 from the National Academy of Medicine for her work on Interleukin-33 (IL-33) as an important therapeutic target for asthma, regulated by environmental allergens. This prize rewards all work on the environment and its consequences on human health.
Jean-Philippe Girard, winner of the Prize Jean Valade 2018 from Fondation de France
Jean-Philippe GIRARD, Silver Medal of the CNRS 2013, Inserm Research Director at IPBS (CNRS-University of Toulouse), will receive the Prize Jean Valade 2018 from ‘Fondation de France’ on March 28th at the Collège de France in Paris, for his work on IL-33, a major therapeutic target for asthma and allergic diseases.
Jean-Philippe Girard is honored for his pioneering work on the discovery and characterization of IL-33, a protein that is now recognized as a central mediator of allergic inflammation and asthma. Asthma is one of the most common chronic inflammatory diseases in humans, affecting up to 300 million people worldwide. Progress in the prevention and treatment of asthma and allergic diseases is thus urgently needed. Identification and validation of novel therapeutic targets is critical in order to develop future treatments for those who do not respond to available therapies. The work of Jean-Philippe Girard and his team over the past 15 years has significantly contributed to the current knowledge about IL-33 mechanisms of action and regulation and the validation of IL-33 as a bona fide therapeutic target for asthma and other allergic diseases, such as atopic dermatitis.
Emma Lefrançais receives the “Grand Prix Jeune Chercheur” from the FONROGA Foundation (Dec. 2018)
Emma Lefrançais, CNRS Research associate in the laboratory of Jean-Philippe Girard, received one of the two “Grand Prix Jeune Chercheur” from the FONROGA Foundation.

The FONROGA Foundation supports initiatives and achievements in the fields of culture and health in the Toulouse region. Since its creation in 2016, more than €160,000 have been given to young researchers through Awards and fellowships. At IPBS, the Foundation has already given the “Grand Prix Jeune Chercheur” to three young researchers (Drs. Laure Gibot, Etienne Meunier and Emma Lefrançais).
