Jean-Baptiste Bizeau

The jury also granted a "Jury's Favorite" prize to the project of Jean-Baptiste Bizeau, a 26-year-old researcher at INRAE, the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment. Jean-Baptiste Bizeau's project investigates the influence of dietary fatty acid intake on the healthy aging of brain and retinal neurons. The aim is to evaluate and compare the impact of dietary fatty acid intake found in a Western-type diet or recommended by health agencies on the aging of nervous tissue. Bizeau’s project will make it possible to offer new nutritional recommendations and educational programs.
