Jean-Pascal Tranie is the President of Aloe Private Equity, a fund management company specialized in digital technologies, healthcare, and climate change. He cofounded several companies including Diogenx a preclinical biotech company for diabetes. In the early ‘00s, he was CEO of Viventures, a large European venture capital fund. Mr Tranie graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and l’Ecole National d’Administration before being appointed CEO of Veolia Energy in Germany, and then the Vivendi Multimedia Director (Numericable, Havas, UGC, Cegetel, Babelsberg).
Mr. Tranie: « «I am very happy to contribute to WhiteLab’s mission to bring innovative data science solution for genomic therapies. DNA and RNA therapies are facing tremendous growth and the need for AI and Machine Learning solutions is only increasing to accelerate discovery and development. WhiteLab is greatly positioned to become a leader in this field.”
Dr. Magali Richard, Co-Founder and Deputy CEO of Home Biosciences, CEO of One Biosciences, will join the Strategic Advisory Board
Dr. Magali Richard has 15 years of experience in biotechnology, spanning both academia and industry. Dr. Richard graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole des Mines de Paris, and holds a PhD in Molecular Biology. From 2009 to 2011 she was Scientist at Biomarin, pursuing in the rare diseases space. Then, Dr. Richard spent six years at Boston Consulting Group (2011-2016). From 2016 to 2019, she was Chief Strategy Officer of DBV Technologies, member of the Executive Committee. Since 2020, Dr Richard is Co-Founder and Deputy CEO of Home Biosciences, the first venture builder dedicated to biotechnologies in Europe, teaming with academic and scientific teams to build, operate and fund successful biotechs that will discover and develop life changing therapeutic solutions. She is the CEO of One Biosciences, a biotech founded by Home Biosciences with Institut Curie, leveraging the power of single-cell omics data to discover new therapeutic solutions and biomarkers.
Dr. Magali Richard: «DNA and RNA are therapeutic modalities that are changing the landscape of medicine. Moving those technologies from breakthrough scientific innovation to life changing therapies available for all patients encompasses multiple challenges for the biotech and pharma ecosystem. The data-driven approaches developed by Whitelab Genomics are concrete solutions to accelerate the pace of R&D in this field and ease the development of those modalities into therapies for the patients. »
