Every year, Fonds Baillet Latour recognizes a rising research star with the most important scientific price in Belgium. This year, the theme of the award is 'metabolic diseases'. The virtual award ceremony will take place on December 1st, 10:30am CET.

The Baillet Latour Fund supports outstanding scientific, academic, artistic and sports achievements. Since 1979, the Fund has awarded the Baillet Latour Health Prize to a scientist for his or her contribution to medical research. This prize is intended not only to stimulate fundamental research, but also to promote its applications for the benefit of human health. The award grant is for three years, with a possibility for renewal.
