"I know the importance of the Galien Prizes which reward each year therapeutic innovations and research work among the most creative" declared Emmanuel Macron in 2017. Now considered the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in the field of biopharmaceutical research, this prize created in 1970 in France is a tribute to Claude Galien, father of modern medical science and pharmacology.

A hope against strokes
Op2lysis is a biotechnology company specialized in the development of breakthrough therapeutic solutions to treat medical needs not covered in the cerebrovascular field.
