Vichy Exposome Grant

The human body is subjected to and responds to complex exposures including environmental factors, our diet, lifestyle factors, and social influences.
For this highly complex interaction, the term exposome was coined by Dr. Christopher Wild at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization.

The VICHY EXPOSOME GRANT supported by VICHY laboratoires is intended to promote and encourage research activity to characterize the skin exposome. One Research Grant of 15 000 € will be awarded annually to a research project in the field of exposome and skin. The research project may be fundamental or clinical. Projects focused on skin diseases will not be considered and those involving animal research are discouraged. Work may be performed at any hospital, university or other not-for-profit research institution.
