Prof. Lancet is a distinguished scientist in the area of genetics and systems biology.
“We are excited to have Prof. Lancet join our Scientific Advisory Board“, commented Kurt Herpel, CEO of Delta4. Herpel added: “His insights and achievements in human genetics, as well as his eminent expertise in the research of olfaction, will be a valuable enrichment for Delta4, as we continue to develop and scale the company. This expertise is highly relevant for both of our strategic priorities, on one hand, the highly innovative projects we work on in cooperation with some of the world’s top Pharma and Biotech companies, and on the other hand the growing cohort of our own (“pipeline”) projects.”
Prof. Lancet stated: “It is a great pleasure for me to join the Scientific Advisory Board of Delta4. I am convinced that my expertise in human olfaction at the molecular, cellular, and organismic levels, as well as the proteomics, genomics, and genetics of olfaction, will make it possible for me to support progress in the research and development projects at Delta4.”
As a member of Delta4’s Scientific Advisory Board Prof. Lancet brings to the company a wealth of experience as one of the systems biology pioneers in the field of human genetics.
