GENOMIC VISION INVITED TO PRESENT MOLECULAR COMBING AT GENOPOLE
• Genomic Vision has revealed the potential of its proprietary technology in particular in the field of the telomere analysis.
• Nicolas Levy (AP-HM) has presented its genetic tests clinical trials for the screening of certain rare diseases by using combing.
Bagneux, Evry (France), May 2, 2018 – 05:45 pm (CEST) – Genomic Vision (FR0011799907 – GV), a company specializing in the development of in-vitro diagnostic tests (IVD) for the early detection of cancers and genetic diseases and applications for life sciences research (LSR), today announced it has been invited to present its Molecular Combing technology by Genopole, the first French biocluster located near Paris, during the seminar Science and Techno which took place in Evry today.
During the session, untitled « Molecular combing: recent progress, clinical diagnostics and new applications », Aaron Bensimon, co-founder and Chairman of Genomic Vision and Stéphane Altaba, Executive Vice President Corporate Development, have notably presented the Company’s projects in the field of combing-based analysis of the telomeres and their incidences on numerous pathologies, particularly in cancers.
For his part, Professor Nicolas Levy (Director of the department of medical genetics at the AP-HM Children’s Timone Hospital) has recalled the studies led within his department for the implementation of combing IVD solutions for specific rare diseases such as myopathies and the expected developments in infantile cancers.
Aaron Bensimon, Genomic Vision’s Co-founder and Chairman, commented:« We have been delighted to participate in this summit organized by Genopole. For us, it was the occasion to put forward our expertise and our potential in the domain of telomere, these structures that contribute to the integrity of the genetic material. By allowing the detailed study of the telomeres length, molecular combing is indeed a particularly interesting technology to analyze the predictability of a large number of diseases such as cancers and age-related pathologies. It is a domain in which we work with Professor Levy’s teams and we intend to rapidly sign other productive academic alliances. »
As the first French biocluster, located south Paris in Evry, dedicated to genetic research and applied biotechnology in the health and environmental areas, Genopole unites 19 research entities, 86 biotech firms, university groups (University of Évry – Val-d’Essonne) and a hospital (1050 beds). Its goals are to foster and develop research in genomics, post-genomics and associated sciences, technology transfer to the industrial sector and high-level instruction to serve those goals, and furthermore to create and support biotech companies. Genopole is supported by the French government, the Ile-de-France Regional Council, the Essonne Departmental Council, the Grand Paris-Sud Metropolitan Area, the town of Évry and the AFM-Téléthon.
