"I am passionate about innovation and health. I have always been committed to serving the public interest alongside public and private actors, whether they be doctors, researchers, patients, entrepreneurs or investors. I am convinced that the convergence of their common interests can shape a new world and be a source of economic and societal value. I am proud to join the Medicen team to take up this formidable challenge," said Stéphane Roques.
