Dr Ibrahim was an active member in Groupe Polyphenols (Life member) where he participated in many activities of our society such as the organization of the XIV ICP in St. Catharines, Ontário, Canada in 1988.

The RAGAÏ IBRAHIM PRIZE was a generous donation by Professor Ibrahim to our society with the purpose to recognize excellence in polyphenol research through a  relevant article by an active graduate student or a young postdoctoral fellow.

Thanks to this donation, GP created the RAGAÏ IBRAHIM PRIZE that has been awarded every two years since 2012.

Ragai Ibrahim became Professor Emeritus at Concordia University after 35-yr of teaching and research, where he made numerous outstanding contributions to the understanding of plant flavonoid biochemistry. He was also an active member of the Canadian Society of Plant Biologists (CSPB), the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) and the Phytochemical Society of North America (Former President & Life member).

We feel deeply saddened by his death and wish to express our most sincere condolences to his family and relatives.
