The Simonart Foundation was founded in 1969 by our grand-father Professor André Simonart to encourage young researchers to advance biomedical research that may offer new perspectives in clinical pharmacology. In the past 5 decades, 18 young scientific talents have been awarded for a total of more than 150.000 euro. Some of these researches have resulted in groundbreaking contribution in their field and gave new perspectives in the treatment of patients.


The Foundation continuously fulfills its mission thanks to the scientific board with members of the KULeuven/ UCLouvain as well as volunteering family members. In order to fund the 3-yearly price award, we decided as grand-children and great-gand-children to run the 20km with family, friends and friends of friends.


We hope you will support us in our passion for the Foundation with your running/ walking legs or with your generous gifts of our sponsors.

Bénédicte, Marie-Hélène,

Patricia & Jean-François
