Véronique is elected for her work translating scientific discoveries into benefits for patients, creating programmes that bring scientists from academia and industry together, and contributing to the scientific understanding of the mechanism of action and role of unprecedented targets in the clinic.
"I am absolutely delighted to have been elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences," said Véronique. "It’s an enormous honour. Translational science is a team effort! I have been very fortunate to work over 20 years with an extremely talented group of people, and this recognition is most certainly for them as much as it is for me.”
