We're missing good cheese so we're off to Paris! Paris is also the biggest biotech cluster in Europe with awesome companies such as DBV Technologies, Cellectis, Enterome & Eligo Biosciences. So, you're invited to join us and the rest of the Parisian biotech gang for a relaxed biotech meetup on our home turf 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 Voisin's Office looking super cool in our Labiotech t-shirts.

Thanks to Voisin Consulting Life Sciences ( for being such a cool partner and both NIBC ( and ( for supporting us 😉
