Since 2007, the French association for esophageal atresia (AFAO – Association Francaise de l’Atresie de L’Oesophage) has launched regular calls for research projects on the topic of esophageal atresia! Funding (The Fanny-Séléna Prize) is awarded in memory of two girls who passed away as a result of the disease.
The call for the 17th research prize was launched in Feburary 2021. This prize aims to reward research projects (biotherapy, cell therapy, gastroenterology, embryology, genetics, epidemiology, pneumology, surgery, minimally invasive surgery) which improve the management of atresia of the esophagus and its associated disorders.
