Congratulations to Alice Malivert, winner of the L’Oréal-UNESCO 2022 French Young Talent Award - L’Oréal-UNESCO Prize for Women in Science.
Created in 2007, the L’Oréal-UNESCO Young Talents France for Women in Science program is committed to supporting the involvement of young women in scientific research. This program identifies and rewards brilliant young women researchers in life and environmental sciences, material sciences, mathematics, computer and information sciences, engineering sciences and technology.For its 16th edition, the Fondation L’Oréal , in partnership with the French Académie des Sciences and the French National Commission for UNESCO , has awarded the French Young Talent Award for Women in Science to 35 brilliant young female researchers.
Selected from 660 candidates, Alice Malivert is a PhD candidate in biological sciences at the Plant Reproduction and Development laboratory (RDP). She obtained her ENS de Lyon Diploma in 2019 (Sciences competitive exam 2015).
For her thesis in biophysics of plant development, Alice Malivert is interested in how plants perceive mechanical constraints. To do this, she is studying the role of a protein in the mechanical integrity of plant cells.
Project title: Mechano-eco-sensing: plants use mechanical forces to sense water availability.
My dream would be that we could feed humanity despite the consequences of climate change.

"Agrégée" in Mathematics, Angèle Niclas is now a post-doctoral fellow at École Polytechnique, and studies the detection of waveguide defects with high accuracy thanks to locally resonant frequencies. She completed her PhD in Applied Mathematics at the École Centrale de Lyon.
Project title: Reconstruction of defects in waveguides using resonant frequencies.
I dream that sicence will succeed in providing concrete solutions for an efficient energy transition.
a PhD candidate at the Cancer Research Center of Lyon and is currently working on the control of dormancy of breast cancer cells disseminated in the bone marrow by TGFB.
Project title: Control of breast cancer disseminated tumor cell dormancy by TGFB2 and BMP4signaling.
Increasing the number of women in Science will help advance research on diseases specific to them
