On April 3, the AXA Research Fund presented in Paris a new financial aid to the global scientific community. Among those selected to receive funds, the panel of experts chose two Spanish projects focusing on diseases associated with age and the mathematical analysis of adversary risks, with an endowment, an innovative way to fund Spanish research, of two million euros, bringing the fund's total investment in Spain to 8.8 million euros.

The two permanent Spanish chairs have been awarded to Professor Ben Lehner, from the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), who has been granted one million euros; and Professor David Ríos, from the Royal Academy of Sciences, at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (ICMAT), part of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), who also has the support of the CSIC General Foundation (FGCSIC), and whose research will be supported with 1.1 million euros.
