José-Alain Sahel Wins "Science Breakthrough of the Year" Award

Professor José-Alain Sahel has won the "Science Breakthrough of the Year" award from the Falling Walls Foundation in Berlin.

The Falling Walls Science Summit is a leading international, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral forum for scientific advances and dialogue between international leaders in both science and society. 

More than 1000 applications from 115 countries were reviewed by the jury, which was chaired by Helga Nowotny, former President of the European Research Council (ERC).

José-Alain Sahel, Chair of the Ophthalmology Department at the University of Pittsburgh, Director of l'IHU FOReSight and founder of the Vision Institute (Sorbonne University, Inserm, CNRS), will be honored at the November 9, 2021 ceremony with the prestigious "The Science Breakthroughs of the Year" award in the "Life Sciences" category, for his work on vision restoration in retinal degeneration.

This award is the culmination of a lifetime of research dedicated to the fight against blindness.

The event will be broadcast live on the Falling Walls website.

The event is held every year from November 7 to 9 in Berlin, to commemorate the fall of the Berlin wall.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
