 - Reveal the link between the development of osteoarthritis and the senescence of mesenchymal stem cells (O. MALAISE)

- Osteoarthritic cartilage sulphate heparans show an increased degree of sulphation, associated with changes in their affinity for FGF-2 and VEGF and their effects on mesenchymal stem cells and chondrocytes (P. ALBANESE)

Congratulations to the 3 winners !
