Chief Scientific Officer, Vaiomer - Labège - France

Dr Lelouvier received his Ph.D in Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology from the University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI, France, in 2007. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (USA), he joined Vaiomer in 2012. As cellular and molecular biology group leader and head of biomarkers discovery, he developed with his group the molecular tools (16S qPCR and 16S metagenomics sequencing) to study specifically the blood and tissue microbiomes, before becoming Chief Scientific Officer of Vaiomer in 2016. The study of tissue and blood microbiota allows Vaiomer to link intestinal dysbiosis and tissular inflammation for the development of biomarkers and therapeutics in the fields of cardiometabolic diseases, neurodegenerative disorders and chronic infection.
