Reach the intracellular activity
Founded in 2009, BioCellChallenge SAS is a biotechnology company specialized in the design and formulation of intracellular delivery systems.
The development of many potentially active ingredients often comes to a halt for lack of effective technology to transport them to their target. To solve this, BioCellChallenge has developed specific formulations for transporting proteins, peptides and antibodies, allowing therapeutic molecules to pass through the cell membrane into living cells. Its latest antibody transport technology was patented in 2013 and its efficacy has been progressively proven, making it BioCellChallenge’s current best commercial opportunity.
Laurent MEUNIER, PhD
Laurent Meunier is a pioneer in vectorization approaches. He obtained his PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Biophysics in 1999 and worked on intracellular antisense oligonucleotides delivery and trafficking as part of his thesis. Then, after 3 years at the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis (TN, USA) he came back to France in 2003 to manage project on the HIV envelope protein before joining biotechnology companies where he developed several intracellular efficient biologics delivery systems. In 2009, he brings together the adapted skill to create the Biotechnology company BioCellChallenge.
Partner, Managing Director
After her Biology studies at Paris Sud University, Martine obtain a Master ESSEC.
Martine has been involded in strategic partnership in various large international groups before joigning BioCellChallenge early 2012 in order to develop the international business . Now in charge of global strategy and business, her goal is to drive this innovative biotech to the next step with new collaboration and out licensing opportunities.
