Pain & CNS behavior CRO  
Chief Executive Officer, Dr Stephane Gaillard has obtained his Ph.D in 2003 in the Aix-Marseille University after a neuroscience cursus. After a first post-doc in plant genetic, he joined the Institute of Developmental Biology of Marseille (IBDM) in 2006. During  6 years, he acquiered a strong expertise in mice behavioral analyses in the field of pain.
