Graduated since 1998 from Lyon (France) University, I served for Moree than 25 year as military physician first in paratroops in overseas campaigns then as intensivist in a burn unit (Percy Military Hospital). I was deployed in Kosovo, Africa, Afghanistan and Mali.
I was driven by these very specific conditions of clinical practices to be skilled in the management of infectious diseases. They are the last stage of evolution of severely injured patients whatever their age.
In 2010 I met a start up engaged in the development of bacteriophages as new tools in the management of septic complications.
In 2013 we have launched the PHAGOBURN project granted by the European Commission. The project ran from 2013 to 2017, it was the first clinical study of the use of bacteriophages in a randomized controlled double blind study. It was published in January 2019 in The Lancet infectious Diseases.
I was retired from the army in 2016, I'm now anesthesiologist in a private clinic in Paris.
In 2020 I expect to set up a new company with the aim to develop the use of bacteriophages in Europe in cooperation with National and European Regulators with a very pragmatic and clinical approach.
