Bonjour Paris, Refresh Is On The Way! 🇫🇷

You can’t have a team with lots of people of French origin and not have Refresh in Paris, so here we come!

Paris is also the biggest biotech cluster in Europe with awesome companies such as DBV Technologies, Cellectis, and Enterome. We’re also missing good cheese. So, you’re invited to join us and the rest of the Parisian biotech gang for a relaxed biotech meetup on the 13th September 2018.

Get ready to meet some great people, listen to some awesome speakers, and enjoy some free beer. You will be able to find us at the Voisin Consulting Life Science office looking super cool in our Labiotech t-shirts.

Thanks to VCLS for being such a cool partner and both NIBC and for supporting us 😉


We will have Christine Placet, CEO of Horama with us! Horama was alerted to Placet’s talent after she had guided Trophos, a company that focuses on spinal muscular atrophy, to positive Phase II/III results and a €470M acquisition by Roche. Last year, she joined Horama, a leading biotech developing gene therapy approaches to ophthalmic diseases, as CEO.

Emmanuel Petiot Deinove

Our second speaker is Emmanuel Petiot, CEO of Deinove. Deinove, based in Montpellier, develops products from rare bacteria, notably the Deinococcus genus. Emmanuel has led the Deinove ship as CEO since 2013. Prior to this, he spent 9 years in various exciting and important sounding positions at Novozymes, a Danish industrial biotech and world leader in enzymes and microorganisms.

What to expect?

  • Relaxed biotech event
  • 2 fireside chats with awesome speakers
  • Networking opportunities with the biotechnologists in your area
  • 65 attendees
  • Free entry
  • Free beers and snacks
  • The unique Refresh vibe

Remember to leave your tie/blazers at home so you can chill out and be a biotech nerd in comfort.

To reserve yourself a spot, subscribe to our Meetup page and click attending. You can also add a plus one (or two) if you have a nice friend 😉 Spaces fill up really fast so you have to get in quick.
