Experience

Pascal has studied bio-engineering and has completed a PhD. thesis at the University of Liege (Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech) in fields related to Life Sciences, allowing him to approach various techniques in the disciplines of Chemistry and Biotechnologies : analytical chemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, proteomic analysis, cell culture, RT-PCR technique,…

During his studies, Pascal was involved in a five-year research project, funded by the Walloon Region and conducted in parallel at the University of Liege and the Catholic University of Louvain (Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and UCL). The work carried out during this research project led to the filing of two European patent applications, which naturally pushed Pascal to move towards the world of Intellectual Property.

Before joining ABYOO, Pascal acquired a considerable experience of Intellectual Property in another firm and managed clients active in different sectors such as bio-pharmacy, biotechnologies, medical devices, immunological techniques, agri-food, enzymology or mechanics.
