On behalf of the Department of Science and Technology of the French Embassy, we would like to congratulate the winners of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine: Franco-Luxembourgian scientist Professor Jules A. Hoffman and Bruce A. Beutler of the Scripps Research Institute for “discoveries concerning the activation of innate immunity", and Ralph M. Steinman "for his discovery of the dendritic cell and its role in adaptive immunity". This is an amazing honor for all three scientists, and we are particularly pleased to see the success of French and Southern Californian researchers in their achievements!

Additionally, Thomas Biedermann, former Deputy Attaché for Science and Technology at the French Consulate in Los Angeles for two years, has left, to be replaced by Manon Lecomte as of October 31st, 2011.

Thank you and Bonne Lecture!

Fabien Agenes, Scientific Attache
Thomas Biedermann, Deputy Scientific Attache
Manon Lecomte, Deputy Scientific Attache
Sara Chandler, Science and Technology Intern
