i-LAB 2017: Two start-ups winners from the research teams of Institut Curie
INOREVIA: A new generation of biological analyzers
Intended for researchers, engineers and technicians from public and private research laboratories, Inorevia is the gateway to the market for new generation biological analyzers. Inorevia develops automated instruments for biological analysis. These automata use breakthrough technologies, developed by a team of researchers from Institut Curie (Macromolecules and Microsystems in Biology and Medicine team, directed by Jean-Louis Viovy), to miniaturize biochemical reactions.
Winner: Julien Autebert, CEO.
STIMUNITY: Bio-drug in the treatment of cancer to stimulate the immune system
Stimunity, the result of research by a laboratory of Institut Curie (Human Innate Immunity team, led by Nicolas Manel) and collaborators at the University of Oxford, proposes a new bio-drug in the treatment of cancer which makes possible to reactivate the immune defenses and to induce an anti-tumor effect on tumors resistant to conventional immunotherapy (checkpoints inhibitors).
Winner: Sylvain Carlioz, CEO.
