Dr. Julien Gardès


Biology and Bioinformatics Expert

Graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in Molecular Biology, Julien Gardès became a specialist in microbe detection by PCR after his PhD work on the improvement of detection protocols of pathogens. These studies were made ​​at the University of Nice and funded by the Délégation Générale de l'Armement (French Defense Ministry). Then he participated for over a year in research missions in the Ceeram.
