Elvire obtained a bachelor's degree in Management and Organization of care units in 2008 at the IUT of Lille and then a degree in health in 2010 specialising in quality, evaluation and project management at the University of Lyon. She worked for nearly 20 years alongside healthcare professionals and finally as a Nursing Home Director. In 2015, she joined CEPPRAAL, the Regional Support Structure for the Quality and Safety of Care, as project manager to support health institutions in the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region. In 2018, she created a consulting, training and support company for health and medico-social institutions in the field of continuous improvement in health and obtained by the High Authority of Health her accreditation as an external evaluator. Elvire joined KREATiS in May 2021 to assist the management in administrative tasks, human resources management, quality and financial management of projects and communication.
Gaspard Levet obtained his engineering degree in Chemistry and Process Engineering from the School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Digital Sciences, CPE in Lyon in 2017. As part of these studies, he participated in a research project on TNCQ derivatives at Durham University during an Erasmus exchange and an internship at CEMES laboratory in Toulouse focusing on the organic synthesis of acene precursor resulting in two scientific publications. From 2018 to 2021 he did a PhD funded by the regional authorities in Normandy and the AID (Agence d’Innovation de Defense – French ministry of defense). He worked on the functionalisation and use of cyclodextrin derivatives as organophosphorus nerve agent detoxifying agents (pesticides/chemical weaponry). In January 2022, Gaspard joined KREATiS to boost the knowledge of the company on mechanisms of action of toxic molecules and to provide in silico expertise for our clients.
Etienne Bourgart received his Master's degree in Research Methods in Ecotoxicology, Toxicology and Public Health from the University of Grenoble-Alpes, France in 2015. This training provided him with a solid understanding of mammalian physiology, cell biology and toxicology as well as a strong background in experimentation. During his internships in research laboratories, he gained experience in in vitro toxicology methods and analytical chemistry. In 2019, he obtained his PhD in Toxicology from the University of Grenoble-Alpes. His research aimed at designing a realistic ex vivo human skin model in order to further explore PAHs mixtures on skin absorption and metabolism of PAHs mixtures with concomitant exposure to UV radiation. He then took advantage of a sabbatical break to improve adaptation skills, open-mindedness and spoken English through an adventure in South-East Asia and New Zealand. After a post-doctoral position on e-cigarettes in the Clermont-Ferrand Chemistry Institute, he joined KREATiS in March 2022 to help to the development of QSAR models for new toxicological endpoints and provide in silico consulting for our clients.
