Jean-Claude Royer was appointed to Clinatec in June 2016 to oversee implementation of the center’s roadmap and supervise all projects at the facility. He succeeded Astrid Astier. Prior to joining Clinatec, the Edmond J. Safra Biomedical Research Center, Royer, a physicist with a Ph.D. in computer science, ran Leti’s characterization department at the Nanocharacterization Platform (PFNC) on the MINATEC campus.
Clinatec was founded by the CEA, Grenoble University Medical Center, Grenoble-Alpes University, and Inserm. The center’s 70-strong staff includes engineers in micro- and nanotechnology, electronics, and software, healthcare practitioners, and other medical professionals.
Clinatec’s main missions are to treat Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, fight cancer, and restore mobility to spinal-cord injury patients.
