Institut de Biologie Physico-chimique, Paris

Better known for his work to support Jewish settlers in Palestine, Edmond de Rothschild (1834-1945) made an important contribution to molecular biology by establishing a biological foundation in his name. The original idea dated back to 1921, and the Institute was founded through a donation by Edmond de Rothschild in 1927 at request of the physicist and Nobel Prize winner Jean Perrin who wished to develop a new approach to research. The Institute opened at 13, rue Pierre-et-Marie-Curie, Paris, in 1931. Baron Edmond's grandson, also called Edmond (1926-1997) continued to provide support for research at the lnstitute.
