Johan Auwerx from EPFL has received the Danone International Prize for Nutrition for his research in molecular nutrition. More precisely, his studies focus on the mechanism of shedding of fat from adipose tissue, thereby paving the way for new preventive and therapeutic strategies to combat obesity and cardiometabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

It is to be noted that Professor Auwerx's Chair is sponsored by Nestlé.
