Thibault Honegger is the Chief Science Officer, President and co-founder of NETRI.
He graduated from the Ecole Centrale of Nantes , and received his MS degree in Biotechnologies from University Joseph Fourrier and his PhD degree in electrical engineering at LTM (CNRS/University Grenoble Alpes) on 3D electrokinetic handling of cancer cells and particles in lab on chip devices. He was a postdoc fellow at the Voldman lab at MIT for two years where he developed and investigated axonal guidance using contact less forces to design neural circuits. He then joined CNRS as a principal investigator in Grenoble to lead the team microfluidics neuro-engineering. In 2018, he co-founded NETRI to accelerate translational research for applications of organ on chip in neuroscience, directly towards patient’s benefits.
He co-authored 24 peer-reviewed research papers, 5 granted patents and 1 book chapter. He is a member of the editor board of IET NanoBioTechnologies. He founded and is the chairman of the conference Neurofluidics: Neuroscience & Microfluidics. He co-founded Peerus, a web app for scientific paper monitoring, Linkio and Smart Force Technologies.
