“Dr. Dessein and his group are extremely well qualified as demonstrated by their previous contributions to the role of human genes to infection outcomes. They have been innovators in the sense that they have not just performed genome association studies but have actually identified candidate genes involved in the host-parasite interaction. They were the first to do so and have been leaders in the field.”
Bilhi Genetics’ technology comes from over 30 years of research led by Prof. Alain Dessein and his colleagues. Throughout his career, Prof. Dessein has built a wide network of relationships with other renowned scientists and research institutes.
This network benefits Bilhi Genetics R&D programs conducted mainly in partnership with Prof. Dessein’s research lab, located at Aix Marseille University (La Timone Hospital). Today, our high level knowledge in genomics and diseases caused by fibrosis has enabled us to build a unique discovery platform for the research into fibrosis susceptibility to genetic polymorphisms.
