Nathalie Picollet-D’hahan (PhD) is in charge of Partnerships & Technology Transfer at the CEA/IRIG Research Institute (Grenoble, France) in the sector of BioHealth. Dr. Picollet-D’hahan graduated in 1997 from Institut Paris-Grignon (INAPG) with a PhD in Biophysics and Pharmacology. After 2 years post-doctoral fellowship in electrophysiology at the CEA Grenoble, she founded a start-up in Multi-Electrode arrays (MEA). In 2002, she obtained a permanent position at the CEA in Grenoble and was in charge of developing ‘cell-on-chip’ devices within the newly created Biochip Lab. During 10 years (2009-2019), she was the head of the Biomics research group focused on 3D organoids engineering (prostate & breast). Capitalizing on this multidisciplinary expertise at the interface between biology and microtechnologies (iRNA-based organoids electroporation, organoids lens-free imaging and chip-based microencapsulation), she focused on OoC applications in the last 6 years, her current research dealing with secretomics-on chip to identify negative effectors of wound healing. She organized international workshops in the field, is involved in several scientific committees, and will chair EUROoCs-2022 in Grenoble. As active partner of the European OoC ORCHID consortium (2017-2020), she co-developed the digital platform & website of EUROoCS, hence contributed to give the EU society its visibility. Involved in recent French initiatives (scientific events, first French OoC directory), she aims at building a French community in OoC. She has co-authored about 25 publications, reviews and book chapters in the field of organoids models and cell-on-chip and is co-inventor of 8 patents.
