Founder & CEO
Fascinated by science and discovery from an early age, I turned to genetics and biochemistry during my university studies. My next 15 years of research in public and private laboratories were mainly focused on the development of therapeutic solutions to fight against certain genetic pathologies. At the beginning of 2015, I joined the new medical biology laboratory of the Monaco Scientific Center (CSM), where an ambitious collaborative project was set up with marine biology researchers: this work led to a patent protecting a coral molecule with exceptional anti-UV protection properties. The idea of valorizing marine products will lead me at the end of 2018 to create Coraliotech, an innovative and eco-responsible Monegasque biotechnology company, specialized in the production and commercialization of coral active ingredients for human health and well-being
