Professor Martin Debbané from the University of Geneva is the first recipient of the 2018 AEMD Marina Picasso Award. He received this distinction on 30th March at the Beau Rivage Hotel. The first prize list for this award was built around the desire to help academics or practitioners offering significant therapeutic advances. For the jury, it was about rewarding years of development of innovative clinical tools and support projects putting emotional management at the heart of their plan.
« Finally, » said the laureate, « a brave, privately funded award, which aims to bring projects combining traditional and innovative techniques and therapeutic models to relieve psychological suffering.”
Around thirty projects were reviewed by a jury made up of members of the foundation office and practicing AEMD practitioners. In addition to Martin Debbané, the other two nominees were:
– Maya Corman from the University of Clermont-Ferrand for her psycho-onco-haematology project on the preparation and follow-up of patients undergoing bone marrow transplants.
– Swann Pichon from the Biotech Campus of the University of Geneva for his research on the cerebral regulation of emotions, using, in particular, emotions generated by virtual reality.
They have both received an honourable mention and funding.
Marina Picasso has teamed up with the AEMD Foundation to allow the creation of the award of which has been endowed with 50,000 Swiss francs per year. This prize will also be supplemented with additional funding to support the development of projects selected in previous editions.
