Maxime Lègues receives Henry Maso award at London Congress



Maxime Lègues presented his paper – The world’s first 3D bioprinted immune skin model suitable for screening drugs and ingredients for normal and inflamed skin – at the virtual IFSCC 2020 Congress in Yokohama, Japan and earlier this year we were delighted to announce him as the winner of our 2022 Henry Maso Award for Young Scientists. His prize was a trip to the IFSCC 2022 Congress in London, courtesy of the IFSCC, where he was formally presented with the award by our outgoing Chair of Education Dr Frédéric Leroy. Once again, huge congratulations to Maxime for a fascinating paper.

The Henry Maso Award is presented at IFSCC Congresses in even-numbered years to the author of the best paper by a young scientist in an issue of the IFSCC Magazine published in the preceding two years.
For the 2024 award this must be a paper published after the IFSCC 2021 Cancún Conference but before the IFSCC 2023 Barcelona Congress. The author must be not older than 40 years on the date of the paper submission. The winner will be awarded a trip to the 2024 IFSCC Congress in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil to accept the Award, with the cost of travel, accommodation and registration fees up to 5000 Swiss Francs being reimbursed by the IFSCC.
