Deborah Revaud - AB Science

«Thanks to Genopole’s platforms, we were able to launch our activities rapidly and carry out our experiments even though our own lab had not yet become operational. Furthermore, with their state of the art equipment, we carried out a complete initial evaluation of the effects of our molecule in only one year.»

Marco Mendoza - testimony

«My arrival at Genopole was motivated not only by the Atige grant for the creation of my team but also by the biocluster’s ecosystem, which is propitious to our success notably because of the competencies found here: those of Genoscope, those of I-Stem in stem cells, those within the Télécom SudParis infrastructures, etc».
