President and co-founder

Sylvain Julien

Operatively, Sylvain oversees the administrative, financial, marketing and commercial tasks, liaising with e-Zyvec’s business partners. Sylvain has a PhD in Life Sciences (2004) and has been a cancer researcher for 15 years (University of Lille, King’s College London, CNRS and INSERM) with >30 scientific publications. Since 2013, the project to create e-Zyvec has been the answer to a long-standing interest in valorization of scientific knowledge and transfer of technology.

Managing Director and co-founder

Carine Morel

Carine runs e-Zyvec’s laboratory and manages both production and R&D operations. During her 20-year career as research scientist (9 laboratories in France and UK), Carine has twice been in charge of setting up research facilities. She joined e-Zyvec’s project in 2015 to manage the technology maturation and patenting processes. Now, Carine is enjoying the challenges of perfecting e-Zyvec’s production tools and creating new ones, so our high-throughput DNA assembly platform can efficiently and flawlessly produce vectors for all our customers.

Scientific Advisor and co-founder

Geoffroy De Bettignies

Geoffroy holds a tenured position of Assistant Professor at the University of Lille and has been working on functional genetics in yeast for the last 15 years. As the main inventor of the technology we exploit, Geoffroy is in a position to contribute to e-Zyvec’s R&D program while remaining an academic. Finding new ways to overcome practical hurdles in molecular cloning is what drives Geoffroy to imagine and test new tools and find swifter ways to accurately manipulate DNA molecules.
