ABOUT US

OUR STORY

In 2013, the Biomaterials and Bioengineering Laboratory of the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (Inserm UMR 1121), co-directed by our CSO, Dr. Philippe LAVALLE, discovered the antimicrobial properties of the anti-inflammatory coatings we were working on.

Between 2016 and 2018, we worked to develop our technology with the support of SATT Conectus .

In 2019, our CEO, Dr Nihal Engin Vrana, together with 2 collaborators, Dr Philippe Lavalle and Dr Angela Mutschler created SPARTHA Medical and were then incubated at SEMIA.

2020: TEAM UP

In 2020, the team has expanded with a production manager, Ms Cynthia Calligaro; a Business Developer, Dr Pulchérie Matsodoum Nguemté and a CFO, Mr Thierry Mignot.

We have been privileged to gather a multidisciplinary and experienced scientific advisory board.
