Director of Business Development, Laboratory of Lactic Acid Bacteria & Mucosal Immunity, Institut Pasteur de Lille, Center for Infection & Immunity of Lille, France

 

Short Biography:

Bruno Pot started an academic career in 1983 as microbial taxonomist at the Laboratory of Microbiology in Gent, where he obtained a Ph.D. in Biology. During this period he was involved in many EU research projects and developed a particular interest in bioinformatics. After 14 years in research he became Science Manager Benelux and Science Manager Europe for the company Yakult, a Japanese food producer. In 2001 he joined Applied Maths as Director Business Development. Bruno is also Research Director of the lab 'Bactéries Lactiques et Immunité des Muqueuses' at the Institut Pasteur de Lille (France) and is a guest professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium).
