Michel DELALANDE Award for Maité Paternostre et Franck Artzner.

On December 14, 2016, Maité Paternostre (I2BC, Team Interactions and mechanisms of assembly of proteins and peptides) and Franck Artzner (Institute of Physics of Rennes), both founding members of the Archi-Pex ( a common laboratory between CNRS, CEA, University of Rennes1 and IPSEN, a French pharmaceutical company) were praised for their work on the structures and mechanisms of assembly of therapeutic peptides by the Michel Delalande Prize of the National Academy of Pharmacy.

The Michel DELALANDE Prize of the National Academy of Pharmacy is intended to reward one or more authors for original works of interest in the pharmaceutical sciences and preferably in relation to pharmacodynamics, therapeutic chemistry or the study of natural chemicals .
 
The work distinguished by the academy this year is that of Maité and Franck on the supramolecular architectures spontaneously formed by peptides and especially therapeutic peptides. Their very fundamental work as a whole, however, has direct links and significant repercussions in the field of peptide formulation. These peptide self-assemblies make it possible on the one hand to understand the chemistry and the physicochemistry of the peptide-peptide interactions, but also to propose innovative galenic solutions for these peptides. In effect, these architectures efficiently protect the peptides from degradation and can serve as reservoirs allowing a slow and sustained release of the active peptide into the blood.
