During this event, Genticel, and other French Biotech and Medtech companies listed on the regulated markets of Euronext, will introduce the company to American specialized investors. This new initiative of France Biotech aims to strengthen the bond between French publicly listed companies and American investors and reinforce the interest in companies listed on the Euronext stock exchange.

During this occasion, Benedikt Timmerman, Founder & CEO of Genticel, will present ProCervix, a first-in-class” therapeutic vaccine, now in phase II in Europe. ProCervix is designed to provide a therapeutic solution for women with highly oncogenic strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) before high-grade lesions or cancer occur.

This is an excellent opportunity for Genticel to present to the U.S. investors our portfolio of therapeutic vaccines in development that will contribute to the fight against cervical cancer of the uterus,” states Benedikt Timmerman.

Pierre-Olivier Goineau, the President of France Biotech, explains: “We are delighted by the high level of interest shown for “French Life Sciences Days,” which will take place for the first time in New York with the U.S. financial community (…) Our companies were born with an international dimension, and they develop breakthrough innovations that are increasingly attractive to foreign investors.
