G & CTI Strategic Committee
An essential decision-maker to guide G & CTI's actions over the long term, the strategic committee owes its sagacity to the commitment of its members: office, general secretariat and college presidencies. In 2021, its support should allow the entire Think-Tank, now structured, to materialize its commitment to developing ideas and actions supporting its ambitions, already enshrined in its founding pillars. Thus, coordinated by its office and its general secretariat, G & CTI wants to make 2021 a year dedicated to the genesis of content and concrete solutions.

After an engineering degree from ENSTBB, I worked on the development of recombinant proteins for vaccines within the company BioProtein Technologies. I then prepared a doctorate in cellular and molecular biology in an INSERM laboratory before joining the bluebird bio company. For fifteen years, I worked in France and the United States, developing a gene therapy drug for the treatment of beta-thalassemia, from preclinical proof of concept, to clinical trials and upon placing on the market. I am co-founder of the company Biotherapy Partners, treasurer of the French Society of Cell and Gene Therapy, member of the Cure Sickle Cell Initiative in the USA and co-president of the G & CTI think-tank. This free and independent space for reflection brings together those involved in gene and cell therapy around a common objective, to make biotherapies accessible to all those who need them.

President and COO OctopussyX BioConsulting
It has now been about thirty years that I have been actively involved in the fields of biotechnologies and innovative therapies, first as a journalist for the specialized written press, then now as a consultant and manager of a digital platform. information and studies on the biopharmaceutical sector with a marked focus on the issues of cell therapy and gene therapy. My membership and my involvement within G & CTI are therefore a logical and obvious outcome to raise awareness of the challenges of these new treatments and contribute to their development and applications in France.
Having a scientific background, I was quickly enthusiastic about the new paradigm represented by gene and cell therapies. After a few years in the laboratory, I had the opportunity for several years to ensure the technology watch department in a large French gene therapy laboratory. There, I acquired a mastery of the global technological panorama by being attentive to the most promising new developments, but also a knowledge of the players in the field and the evolution of their strategic positions and the global landscape. On the strength of these achievements and this particularly enriching and formative experience, I decided to create my own consulting entity at the service of companies in the innovative therapy sector.
