The International Institute of Cellular and Molecular Pathology (above) was inaugurated as a centre for medical research last April. Christian de Duve (below) is president of its governing body as well as chairman of the executive committee and in those capacities he directs the activities of the ICP.

Peter Newmark reports from Brussels.
