The Company has appointed a Scientific Advisory Board consisting of global experts in healthcare systems management and technology. The Board’s mission is to support Genomtec in the further development of the Company’s innovative technology, its business and products clinical development. Current appointees to the Scientific Advisory Board include: Eric Garnier – with 35 years of experience in the medical industry, and Prof. Krishnendu Chakrabarty – winner of numerous scientific awards, and holder of 18 patents in the US market, specializing in the area of microfluidic techniques. It is predicted for the future to extend appointees to the Scientific Advisory Board for specialists in the field of diagnostics and treatment of infectious diseases
“I am proud that experts with such a vast experience would like to support our development and value our potential. Their experience, knowledge and respectful position, at the former and current workplace, is a great opportunity for us to build recognition and commercial presence on the global medical device market.” – Miron Tokarski, CEO and founder of Genomtec.
Eric Garnier has an experience of around 35 years in healthcare businesses, including 12 years of expatriation in the UK, Asia and the US. During this period, Eric has occupied key positions with increasing responsibilities in two American multinational Life Sciences companies i.e., Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pall Corporation (a Danaher company).
Eric started in finance and has had several management roles in France and in the UK as European Finance Director in Bristol-Myers Squibb. He subsequently moved to general management leadership positions as General Manager France, Regional VP South Europe and then President of the AsiaPac region for Pall, a $800M business, based in Singapore. In his last role with Pall Eric was Vice President and GM of the global Medical BU based in Boston.
After having relocated back to France in 2018 Eric has set up his own consultancy business specializing in healthcare. He is also a member of the board of Angels Santé, has invested in more than 20 start-ups and is a board member in a few of these. Eric has an MBA from Institut Superieur de Gestion (Paris).
„I was impressed by Genomtec Innovative technology and by the dynamism of Miron and his team” – said Eric Garnier, explaining his commitment to the Genomtec Scientific Advisory Board.
Krishnendu Chakrabarty received the B. Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 1990, and the M.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. He is now the John Cocke Distinguished Professor and Department Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and Professor of Computer Science, at Duke University. He has held Visiting Professor positions and Chair Professorships at University of Tokyo (Japan), University of Bremen (Germany), Tsinghua University (China), National Tsinghua University (Taiwan) and National Cheng-Kung University (Taiwan). He has been awarded with multiple awards and scholarships all over the globe.
Prof. Chakrabarty’s current research projects include: design-for-testability of integrated circuits and systems (especially 3D integration and system-on-chip); microfluidic biochips; hardware security; machine learning for fault diagnosis, failure prediction, healthcare, and biochemical analysis; neuromorphic computing systems. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, DARPA, Office of Naval Research, National Institutes of Health, Army Research Office, Semiconductor Research Corporation, and directly by companies such as Intel, Cisco, and HP. He has published 26 books (with one book translated into Chinese) and over 800 peer-reviewed papers on these topics. He holds 18 US patents (with) two patents pending) and his research on microfluidic biochips has been licensed by Advanced Liquid Logic, Illumina, GenMark, and Baebies Inc. His test technology solutions have been adopted by Intel, TSMC, Samsung, Mentor Graphics (now part of Siemens), and Qualcomm. He has supervised 36 PhD dissertations.
„Genomtec is a trailblazer in advancing molecular diagnostics using LAMP technology and microfluidics. I am very excited at the opportunity to serve on the Scientific Advisor Board and engage with the Genomtec team as well as other board members” – said Prof. Krishnendu Chakrabarty.
