A new Manager for Luxinnovation’s Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster
Luxembourg welcomes new Cluster Manager for BioHealth Jean-Philippe Arie who has joined Luxinnovation as of March 1, 2018.
The Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster managed by Luxinnovation aims to strengthen and capitalise on the national strategy developed by Luxembourg’s government to achieve scientific excellence in molecular diagnostics, the cornerstone of personalised medicine, as well as enhance Luxembourg’s reputation as a recognised and attractive environment for biomedical research, development, innovation (RDI) and business. It also aims to support the community, help members find new opportunities for advancement here in Luxembourg and abroad, and work with them to articulate their needs and their challenges at a national level. This mission is now rejuvenated thanks to the addition of the new Cluster Manager, Jean-Philippe Arie, who arrives with extensive experience well suited to his new role.
Up until February 2017, Jean-Philippe was Senior Project Manager/Business Developer for Genopole, France’s leading biotech and biotherapy cluster, located in Paris. He was also the COO for the GLOBAL CARE initiative consortium, an “an outstanding consortium of 5 Carnot Institutes that covers 4 therapeutic fields of major interest in human health markets: oncology, ophthalmology, infectious diseases and neurology.”
Jean-Philippe received his PhD in Biochemistry at the Paris XI University in 2002. Between 2003 and 2007, he got involved in co-founding AbAg, a biotechnology company developing serodiagnosic tests for niche markets in infectious diseases, which is now part of DiagxonHit (Euronext Paris, ALEHT). In addition, he is co-owner of Valorhiz , which offers multidisciplinary R&D services to meet specific needs for functional diagnosis, biological treatment and monitoring of soils, and was a co-founder of ABO Diag (now a part of Diagast) that developed innovative blood typing strategies.
