Managing Director and co-founder
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.
