Galien Foundation

Our mission:

The Galien Foundation fosters, recognizes and rewards excellence in scientific innovation to improve the state of human health. Our vision is to be the catalyst for the development of the next generation of innovative treatment and technologies that will impact human health and save lives.
The Foundation oversees and directs activities in the USA for the Prix Galien, an international award that recognizes outstanding achievements in improving the human condition through the development of innovative therapies. The Prix Galien was created in 1970 in honor of Galien, the father of medical science and modern pharmacology. Worldwide, the Prix Galien is regarded as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in biopharmaceutical research


The Foundation works through complementary tracks:
  1. advocacy to build policies and best practices supportive of the private-sector research enterprise;
  2. educating key stakeholders, including the media, about the contributions of the scientific method in driving patient-centric approaches to drug discovery and development; and
  3. promoting productive partnerships between our Corporate Members and the patient, provider and payer communities, ranging from governments and professional associations to international organizations, academia, the media, and NGOs.
  4. recognition of outstanding achievements and development of new treatments for human conditions.
