Our esteemed member, Fabio Benfenati, has received the prestigious “Antonio Feltrinelli” Prize in Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Neuroscience, which is awarded to Italian citizens by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.

The Feltrinelli Prizes, known as the “Italian Nobels” for their prestige and economic value, were established in 1942 through a bequest from entrepreneur and artist Antonio Feltrinelli. These awards recognize outstanding contributions to science and the arts globally. Over the years, the prizes have been awarded to leading figures in both scientific and humanistic fields.

The 2024 Feltrinelli awards ceremony took place on June 20, 2024, in the presence of the President of the Republic. Congratulations to Fabio on this well-deserved recognition!
