Set of skills I bring into this venture

Francois Bergeron holds an MBA from HEC Montréal and a PhD in nuclear medicine and radiobiology from the University of Sherbrooke. Fascinated by promoting innovation, his fields of expertise are financial and technological assessment of scientific discovery, with a central experience in analytical chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. He published 6 scientific papers on the special properties of DNA, including the phenomenon of charge migration and repair along the double helix.
