Created in 1970, the Fondation ARC Léopold Griffuel Award is the most important prize in the field of cancer research in Europe. With a total value of €300,000, it rewards every year internationally renowned researchers whose work has led to a major breakthrough in cancer research.
The Fondation ARC Léopold Griffuel Award results from a bequest: Léopold and Alice Griffuel, determined to get involved in the fight against cancer, wished to reward the best cancer researchers with a prize endowed thanks to the incomes of two Parisian buildings they owned before passing them on to the association, now become a foundation.
The Fondation ARC Léopold Griffuel Award is accorded after an independent evaluation by an international scientific committee and a validation by the Board of Directors of the ARC Foundation for Cancer Research. Since 2015, it has been divided into two categories: the Fondation ARC Léopold Griffuel Award for Basic Research (€150,000) and the Fondation ARC Léopold Griffuel Award for Translational and Clinical Research (€150,000).
Since its creation, 51 researchers from 11 different countries and from the most prestigious international research institutions have received the awards.
